Our Matiz Gallego sardines are harvested off the coast of Galicia, known for its exceptional seafood. Traditional methods are used that respect the biological cycles of the species, as well as avoiding harm to other sea creatures. The sardines are caught in seines, fishing nets that are used to encircle the school of sardines. Once harvested, the sardines are prepared by hand and then packed with the highest quality ingredients to produce a sardine that is moist, tender, and uncommonly flavorful. Matiz sardines are available packed in olive oil and sea salt or with natural lemon.
