Conservas Ortiz preserves their products in the craft way, respecting traditional fishing methods. The result can be seen in the unmistakable texture of their products and their natural flavor which sets them apart from the rest.
In the Bay of Biscay, there appear every summer, huge shoals of white tuna. The weathered fishermen aboard the fishing boats of the Ortiz fleet use traditional methods to catch the plump Atlantic tuna. The white tuna are individually line caught with live bait or fly during the coastal fishing season. This age-old technique of selective fishing (which also avoids unwanted fish being discarded) respects the environment and protects marine reserves. Prepared in an entirely artisanal way, the flavor of the tuna is locked in by cooking and storing the exquisite fish in olive oil.
