albacore tuna from Hondarribia (Spain)
Facts & Figures
A good catch
The tuna fishers of Hondarribia catch their fish – only tuna, and only one at a time – using pole and line or trolling.
Tuna, and especially white tuna, has traditionally been the star of local Basque cooking. Sometimes lovingly nicknamed “bonito”, it’s a mainstay of many restaurant menus. It’s delicious fresh, but the canned variety is in no way inferior and tastes just as good!
