Small but Mighty
We love Atlantic mackerel for the delicate flavor and firm, meaty texture we crave from larger fish, like tuna or swordfish. But while big, apex-predator fish are dwindling, their numbers diminished by overharvest, mackerel are thriving. As small, schooling fish, mackerel are found in abundant populations, which can sustain responsible harvest. Our Atlantic Mackerel are caught by hook and line to minimize bycatch and maximize quality, while supporting a community of traditional, small-boat fishermen in Santoña, Spain. Mackerel also provide protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B-12 and other essential nutrients without the high levels of accumulated toxins associated with larger fish. Seasoned with traditional Mediterranean flavors and packed in organic olive oil, our Atlantic Mackerel makes eating lower on the food chain an easy, satisfying part of any snack or meal.
