Balfegó is a world leader in the sustainable capture of the Thunnus thynnus species. Their wild tunas live in swimming pools off the coast of l’Ametlla de Mar, 150 km south of the city of Barcelona and are fed exclusively on wild fish.
Balfegó only catches adult tuna of 100 to 300 kg which they extract from the sea at their optimum level of fatness, on demand, while following a product traceability system which is unique in the world. This way Balfegó provides a product of excellent organoleptic qualities and maximum guarantee for the consumer, both fresh and frozen, 365 days a year.
The individual harvesting of each bluefin tuna ensures a stress -free product, and optimal meat quality even when eaten raw. That is why the top restaurants in the world serve Balfegó’s Bluefin Tuna.
Each part of the tuna has its own special culinary properties. To share this knowledge and help you obtain the best possible results, Balfegó has developed a handbook of cooking ideas which become available to anyone that may be interested.
