Basque Cantabrian White Tuna: day or night fishing?
We have talked many times in our blog about the Basque Cantabrian White Tuna. But today we want to explain when is the right time to fish for this species. And, we are not referring to the month in particular, but to the time of the day.
As you already know, there are many species that live in the sea that are fished at night, while many others are caught during the day. This has its explanation and each one of them must be caught at its optimum time. That is why today we want to focus on one of our favorite fish, the Basque Cantabrian White Tuna.
In this case, the Bonito is caught in an artisanal way, one by one and it is done during the day. This is because this fish is found near the surface during daylight hours, while at night they go down to greater depths.
Therefore, the Basque Cantabrian White Tunas are caught during the morning, since they are at a maximum depth of 5 meters. In this way, angling is easier.
And this is how this highly prized fish, with which so many dishes can be prepared, is caught every year. If you haven’t tried it yet or don’t know how to prepare it, go to our website in the recipes section and take a look, you’ll love it!
