Why is this the best bluefin tuna in the world?


This is intended to be an article that reflects the passage of who spends a lot of time studying the wonderful world of Tuna contributing their knowledge acquired in distant Japan. It is necessary to start from the maximum rigor observing the valid argument that glimpses the current panorama and for something more than thousands of years ago ... We are right in the zone of passage of the Wild Tuna when it naturally has its best conditions for the consumption of the human being !

In short, the Wild Red Tuna (Thunnus Thynnus) passes through the Strait of Gibraltar, where JC. Mackintosh has its headquarters. This is demonstrated by this graphic that illustrates the natural passage of the wild Tuna around the world. The fishing of the Red Tuna of the Strait (Thunnus Thynnus) is done in an artisanal way by the team of professionals of JC.Mackintosh, using techniques of Japanese origin for their most delicate and pampered capture.

The Atlantic bluefin tuna is capable of exceeding 400 kilograms in weight and reaching up to 679. Throughout history, bluefin tuna has been highly valued as food for humans. The value in the market was already high since the times of Ancient Greece and it is known that the Phoenicians already traded with their meat. Beyond its commercial value as food, its great size, speed and strength that it deploys as a predator has attracted the admiration of fishermen since ancient times, as well as writers, athletes, bankers and scientists.

The bluefin tuna is also the basis of one of the fisheries with medium and large specimens being highly valued by the Japanese market, where they are consumed as sushi and sashimi.
