We fish

More than 60 vessels in the Southern Hemisphere

We have been sailing around the world in search of the best fishing grounds since 1961. We were pioneers in the construction of the first vessel with on-board freezing technology. Other vessels followed, which at the time where the largest freezer vessels in the world and the first to process fish offshore.

Our fleet is currently made up of more than 60 vessels, both freezer vessels and wet-fish trawlers, operating in the main fishing grounds of the southern hemisphere, fishing and selecting the best marine species. Trawlers, beam trawlers, squid fishing vessels and longline vessels specialized in hake, monkfish, panfred and kinglip fishing in Namibia, shrimps and different species of prawns fishing in Mozambique, red shrimp, deep-water rose shrimp and crab fishing in Angola and Argentinean red shrimp, illex squid and hake (also known as toothfish) fishing in Argentina.

Our clear commitment to Innovation and to the constant improvement of all our activities has led to the renovation of part of our fleet with the construction of new vessels for Namibia and Mozambique.
