Small sardines from the Ría de Arousa in olive oil

  • Exhibitor: FRINSA
  • Brand name: Frinsa
  • Sector: CONSERVAS DE PESCADO
  • Innovation Area

These sardines are the youngest specimens of the Sardina pilchardus, an oily fish belonging to the Clupeidae family. They are easily recognizable by their silver sheen and have a high nutritional value.

The reason for this limited edition is that the catches are made using a sustainable, artisanal fishing method known as “Xeito” which has been used by Galician fishermen for centuries. It comprises a rectangular cloth stretched between two tracks; the upper one is made up of a floating system of buoys that enables a variable depth to be set, and the lower one is weighted down with lead. This cloth remains attached to the boat by a rope of variable length, allowing the selective capture of the sardines, which have to be removed manually, one by one.
