The sea is one of the most important natural resources that exists and, thanks to it, in GARCIDEN we have the capacity to supply the markets with a great variety of species. Respect for the environment, sustainable fishing and healthy living are some of the priorities that we work with every day in GARCIDEN since, the correct conservation and impact that is developed on the environment, will mark the future of the sector itself, and consequently, of the company.

ADPescado y Marisco is the division of GARCIDEN responsible for the selection, processing and marketing of these products. The policy of sustainable fishing implemented in this area, ensures that the species captured come from suppliers that promote the sustainability of the species, their regeneration and the preservation of their natural habitat. The commitment to the Environment allows us to offer products of the highest quality and freshness.

“The right to fishing entails the obligation to do it responsibly”

GARCIDEN sells a wide range of fresh, frozen and processed products.

Every day the fresh product is selected, both nationally and in the different European markets where we are present, in a meticulous way and following the policy of sustainable fishing in each of the markets in which we have presence.

Additionally, GARCIDEN has a wide selection of frozen fish, both at source and at the facilities themselves. The facilities are equipped with forced air freezing tunnel at -40ºC, and IQF freezing pond (freezing in brine). Both methods are used mainly to preserve the quality and nutritional properties of the products.

Blue and white fish both fresh and frozen.

Our assortment of fresh fish is not a closed catalogue and it could not be otherwise since we depend on what the sea offers each day. We always try to get the best of each market and offer it immediately to our customers so that they achieve the freshness they crave.

We also offer a large selection of frozen goods, both in origin and in our own facilities. We have a freezing tunnel by forced air at -40º and freezing raft IQF – freezing in brine-. Always with the objective of preserving the quality and nutritional properties of the fish that both our customers demand and the quality standards in force in the sector.

Seafood

Within our providers we can count on a high percentage of traditional shellfish farmers, some of whom have been in this sector for more than 50 years. These great connoisseurs of the sea offer us the best products of the coast so that GARCIDEN can distribute them.

Galician mussel with denomination of origin, bivalves, cephalopods and crustaceans comprise the wide range of products that we commercialise.

Aquaculture

All our products of this line of business are carefully selected to come from companies with policies of Sustainable Aquaculture, respectful of both the species that they raise and the environment in which they operate, always trying to make the growth of the fish as natural as possible.

It is an alternative to all the guarantees of quality increasingly present in our diets, necessary to maintain the balance of marine ecosystems and preserve the future of certain species that have been and are threatened by overfishing.

Norwegian salmon, sea bream, sole, sea bass, turbot and trout are some of the products sold in this line of business.

Freezing in Brine

In GARCIDEN we have our own freezing line in Brine. This is a traditional preservation process that, together with the latest techniques and technologies, results in the method chosen by the large canneries for the acquisition of their products, since this technique maintains the nutritional properties of the product.

With capacity to generate 4tn/hour of frozen product, at Garciden we continuously and constantly supply large companies in the industry both nationally and internationally.

We also have the possibility of adapting to any commercial format suggested by our customers, whether it is individual 20kg carton, big bags or any other type of packaging.

The right to fishing entails the obligation to do so responsibly.

Sustainable fishing focuses on the preservation of different ecosystems and tries to minimize the impact of catches on the marine environment.

Increasingly this sector is aware of the need to abandon aggressive methods of capture to give way to new formulas that allow us to preserve the species and its environment while being able to continue enjoying these delicacies in our cuisine.

In GARCIDEN we are committed to the environment and that is why we are committed to fishing methods that respect both the species we commercialize and their natural habitat, strongly condemning methods such as poisoning or explosives.

This commitment would not be possible without the collaboration of the local brotherhoods, professionals of the sector that every day go fishing with the wide knowledge that the experience of years of work confers them.
