Anchovy fillets in olive oil (glass)

Small in size, but powerful in flavor - that’s the anchovy. It looks a bit similar to the herring and comes from a large family of about 140 subspecies which you can find all over the world. It eats plankton and young fish and is, like the sardine, a fatty fish. Our delicious Sea Tales Anchovies in olive oil are cured and ready to eat as a nutritious salty snack or a great addition to add more flavor to a meal. It is a versatile ingredient and works great in a variety of cuisines and recipes, from Italian pastas to an everyday Caesar Salad.

Our anchovies are from Mar del Plata, a popular beach resort by the Atlantic Ocean. For those who walk beyond the colourful parasols on the beaches and the touristy boulevard in the Argentinean beach village of Mar del Plata, you can find a row of docking stations with bright orange fishing boats: the home port to the first MSC-certified anchovy-fishery in the world.

Fish with a story

Jorge is one of the anchovy-fishermen in Mar del Plata. He's the captain of the boat the "Rafaela". According to Jorge: "To catch the fish, it’s extremely important we use sustainable fishing methods because we want to enjoy seafood now and in the future!"

Fishing Method

Anchovy-fishermen work with cone-shaped nets which they tie to the back of their boats and pull through the water. Because anchovies swim in compact schools, this method is very selective.

The fishermen don’t work all year through; in mating season they leave the fish data alone. Not only that, the nets have been designed in such a way that the small, young anchovies can swim right through. Keeping the fish population stable all year long.
