Fishing takes place in two periods of the year, approximately from May to June and October to November.
The product is marketed tuna after a long maturation period of at least 3 or 4 months.
The anchovies are processed within hours of capture (only in Sicily) and come from a traditional fishing with "lampara" and "purse seine net".
The anchovies are fished during the night; in the dark, in fact, they are attracted by strong light (lampara) situated on a small boat that is parked in the middle of the sea; once drawn under the boat, the anchovies are encircled with the network (purse seine) and harvested.
This is a traditional fishing method that follows the lunar phases (with the full moon does not fishing for too much light).
The fish comes fresh and after the organoleptic test, which evaluates the quality, it starts to work. The anchovies are gutted, washed with brine and placed in containers with sea salt from Trapani or Marsala where seasoned from 3 to 6 months. Subsequently, the salted anchovies are mature and start to thread stage, invasettamento, oiling and closing.
All major, evisceration, salting, threading and invasettamento, are performed exclusively by hand.
