Sardines belong to various species of fish of the Clupeidae family, closely related to the anchovies and herring. They live in coastal areas, especially in the Atlantic Ocean and in the Mediterranean Sea, where they form great shoals. The flesh of this fish is highly nutritious.
The reason for this limited edition is that the catches are made using a sustainable, artisanal fishing method known as “Xeito” which has been used by Galician fishermen for centuries.
It comprises a rectangular cloth stretched between two tracks; the upper one is made up of a floating system of buoys that enables a variable depth to be set, and the lower one is weighted down with lead. This cloth remains attached to the boat by a rope of variable length, allowing the selective capture of the sardines, which have to be removed manually, one by one.
