Why is Balfegó considered the world’s best bluefin tuna?
World leaders in commercialising fresh produce
We catch our fish between May and June. Once caught, the tuna go into our aquafarming facilities located 5 km away from L’Ametlla de Mar (Tarragona). This allows us to sell fresh, high-quality bluefin tuna that is totally unique, 365 days a year.
Optimal fat point
Balfegó is unique in measuring the fat percentage of each fish.
Our wild bluefin tuna is caught in the Western Mediterranean and then exclusively fed on blue fish. Our desire to achieve excellence in our products has led us to become the only company in the world that extracts tuna from the sea at its optimal fat point, by customer demand.
