Cousin of tunamackerel live in the waters of the North Sea, the Atlantic coasts of North America and Europe, as well as the Mediterranean.

Consumed fresh, smoked, dried and salted, or canned, this semi-fatty fish with thousand and one finishes (Provencal, white wine, mustard, cotriade...) is appreciated for its flesh both thick and fragile whose fragrant flavor is exciting our taste buds.

Becoming a flagship product of the canned fish industry, particularly developed and anchored in Brittany (Finistère and Morbihan), it has inspired manufacturers who, beyond the classic recipe for white wine and herbs, now work it also in glasses, in rillettes and other prepared products.
