This female-founded company is leading the resurgence of tinned fish in the US. The term "Fishwife" dates back to the 16th century, and referred to the daughters or wives of fishermen who sold fish at the market. The term gradually evolved into an insult for women who were brassy and foul-mouthed,

 

GUEYU MAR, Asturias, Spain

Abel Alvarez is not a chef. He is an artist, an innovator, and above all an asador (grill master). His restaurant sits on Playa de Vega.

Some go to lunch at the restaurant, while others are preserved in a can for you to savor whenever the moment strikes.

Today, his grandson runs the factory maintaining centuries-old tradition and flying the flag for his grandmother’s surname, Olasagasti.

RAMON PENA, Galicia, Spain

There is no better place in the Atlantic than Galicia for Ramón Peña to have mastered his technique. He is first to the morning fish auctions, purchasing the absolute best of each day’s catch. After cooking in fresh seawater, each offering is hand-packed into tins one tasty morsel at a time. Only small producers like Peña, who use time-tested artisan techniques, are able to capture the intrinsic flavors and preserve the incomparable texture of pristine seafood.

YURRITA, Guipúzcoa, Spain

Conservas Yurrita is a family-owned business founded in 1867. After five generations and 150 years, Yurrita is the oldest canning company in Basque Country.
