Large shoals of sardines travel the seas to feed or lay eggs near the coastline. Their silver scales make it possible to spot them like faint clouds of light on dark moonless nights. That is how the artisanal fleet captures them.

Their meat has an intense flavour and its high content in Omega 3 oils makes it very healthy.

Conservas Valcárcel chooses the best sardines from the Cantabrian Sea, fished at the precise moment. They are prepared fresh, to preserve their qualities and they are canned in olive oil.
