Value chain

Fishing, processing and marketing

We participate in the entire product value chain, from the sea to the table, through the horizontal integration of the activities involving supply of raw materials, transformation into finished product and distribution thereof for marketing.

Our activity is linked to the sea, with tuna being the main product in virtually every market in which we operate. To obtain this raw material we employ two channels: purchase from third parties and tuna fishing by our own fleet, something that allows us to ensure supply and control the quality of the process from start to finish.

The Nauterra fleet is made up of 6 tuna fishing vessels, 2 merchant vessels and 2 support ships.
