PESCANOVA ARROUND THE WORLD

Pescanova was created in Spain to offer high quality fish throughout the world. Below follow some major points in its history.

Pescanova is the first company in the world to proceed with the deep freezing of fish and the first to place freezers in supermarkets for the commercialization of its products.

Pescanova innovates by building LEMOS, the world’s first freezer vessel which allows for deep freezing on board, thus making it a leader in freshly frozen fish globally.

A few months after its foundation, Pescanova launches three new vessels: Andrade, Pambre and Doncos.

The fleet is complemented with Soutomaior and Sobroso which, thanks to their on-board freezing technology, make it possible for Pescanova to explore the best fishing grounds in the world for high quality catches.

Since its establishment, the company’s scope focuses on fishing which involves the quality control of its products and the delivery of incomparable freshness to consumers.

Two stern trawlers are built, Vimianzo and Villalba, as the first vessels that allow for fishing over the stern, rather than over the side.

Ten years after its foundation, in the 1970s Pescanova is recognized as the greatest fishing company in Europe.

TODAY

Almost 60 years after its foundation, Pescanova stays loyal to its values. The company keeps operating as a vertically integrated fishery through certified practices promoting the protection of the living aquatic resources and the marine ecosystem, from fish and seafood sourcing to its commercialization in markets worldwide.

Right now, Pescanova Group has a dynamic presence in all five continents with its own fleet of vessels, aquaculture units and production facilities, employing about 10,000 people.

Its goal is to offer a wide range of fish and seafood products of high nutritional value, aspiring to bring the freshness of the sea to consumers’ table.
