El Golfo Frozen Fish

El Golfo's modern trawlers fleet captures Gayi Hake (Merluccius gayi) south of the 36th parallel, as our primary resource. Year around, and on a daily basis, the fish is packed with ice at sea and kept iced during transportation, thus guaranteeing optimal quality fresh raw material.

The frozen fish plant, combining manual production lines with increased automation, has a monthly production capacity over 1,200 tons of finished products. These are packed either in our own packing or in designs provided by the client.

Product specifications, which are tailored to meet our client's needs, are certified by our own quality control department and by independent surveyors.

The plant has also been certified for its Quality Assurance Program based on HACCP.

El Golfo frozen products stand out for their white meat and firm texture.

These products are:

Controlled Portions * Interleaved Fillets
Defatted Fillet Blocks * IQF Fillets * Minced Blocks

Our frozen products reach the markets of Australia, Europe, the United States, and Brasil, among others.
