Albacore tuna lives in tropical waters. It is a large migratory fish that can grow to more than 2 m long with a weight in excess of 200 kg. It can be recognized by its yellow fin. Its light pink flesh is of very high quality, with a firm texture and a delicate flavour. Albacore is canned raw from a single block.
Engraulis encrasicolus anchovy fillets are salted, pressed and matured. The spine is completely removed and there are virtually no bones left in the fillets.
