Conserving the sea
The extraction of goose barnacle in Galicia, is established as an artisanal fishery widely regulated, seeking a responsible way of fishing.
The most immediate management tool is a Fishery Management Plan (FMP). This plan is specific to each area and developed by the group of collectors involved in the exploitation. They are the ones presenting the FMP to the Administration, which must then review it and approve it.
Our commitment to sustainability starts by developing and implementing a fishery management plan that incorporates a team of professional watchmen to prevent poaching, a limitation in the daily catches, a rotation in the areas where we work, and a continuous search for solutions to improve the instability of the market.
Canning Canner from barnacle is a course of action to join in this record of commitment to sustainability. It allows us to work in neglected areas, very beaten, where it is difficult to work. Thus, we can give rest to the most demanded areas so they can recovery.
In addition, the development of non-perishable barnacle based products, allows us to stabilize prices, and offer it at any time of year with all its quality.
We transform the goose barnacle keeping its flavour but extending the times when it can be tasted, and also opening a range of endless possibilities of preparation.
