These octopus are special because they are fished on day boats. After being caught they reach the harbor alive. Immediately after they are sent to our plant to be selected, processed and IQF (individually Quick Frozen) and shipped directly to our facilities in the United States. We select the best fishing grounds in both the Spanish and Portuguese coast depending on the time of the year, so we can always bring the highest quality product to our customers.
