To find out everything you want to know about the “runner of the sea”: the bluefin tuna (thunnus thynnus) and how it was fished from the 1500s to the present day, this is the itinerary for you. In an engaging storytelling, you will hear the tales of the loves and sacrifices of the men and women who went to work in the tuna fishery every year during the fishing season between the 19th and 20th centuries. The visit is carried out in the northernmost part of the island, outside the factory, with the possibility of accessing the interior spaces subject to authorisation. As well as being committed to eco-sustainable fishing of bluefin tuna, the factory continues, as in the past, to produce the highly prized “zero km” tins: fillet, ventresca and tarantello are the parts of the “blue fin” most appreciated by most of the “furesti” visitors, a dialect term for “tourists” on the island. Do you know the difference between bluefin and yellowfin tuna? No problem, on the tour we will talk about that too, as well as providing you with some easy recipes that will make your cooking wonderful.
So anemmu (let’s go!), your guide Natalia is waiting for you!
