ECHEBASTAR FLEET, S.L.U.
Echebastar is a Basque fishing company of tunas, based in Bermeo, which has a fleet of five tuna vessels.
We have been working in tuna fishing since 1967, fostering sustainable fishing, a responsible use of fishing products and a maximum concern for the environment.
We have always worked in fishing and selling our tuna to canning factories. And we still do, but today, thanks to our cutting-edge technology capacity and our know-how (acquired throughout years of both economic and human effort), we are developing a new business line aimed at reaching the final consumer in deep-frozen tuna, smoked and canned food.
Echebastar is the only national company, and there are very few international, which produces high-quality deep-frozen tuna on board freezer tuna vessels, traditionally designed for freezing in brine. We allocate the brine-frozen tuna to canning factories and we use the deep-frozen tuna (-60 degrees) to produce our Echebastar tuna ALAI.
