The Bay of Biscay

The Bay of Biscay is a wild open sea exposed to heavy swell. Its waters are influenced by the Gulf Stream, varying the salinity and the temperature at different times of the year.
With its variation, the characteristics of the fish and even the species that are caught varies.
The key moment in the history of Santoña's canning industry was in 1880, when the Italian citizen Vella Scaliota settled in the town, a merchant, military and fishing port of great historical renown.
On the basis of local salting methods and after experimenting with various recipes using butters and other fats, Scaliota found olive oil to be the perfect condiment for setting off the flavour and texture of the fish, which was first gently cleaned and filleted.
This exquisite invention, which differentiated and gave a new value to the fruits of the Santoña fisherman's labour, was soon consolidated as one of the town's most prosperous industries.
