Atlantic Seabass 400/600 gr
When people talk about farmed fish, they often make the mistake of considering them an inferior product to wild fish, without taking into consideration, on the one hand, the great progress made by aquaculture and, on the 'other hand, the sad situation of our seas due to pollution.
High-end farms, as Aquanaria surely is, have made great strides for a product with the same quality as caught fish, to which, however, it adds a certification of safety and environmental respect. In the wild, fish are yes free to eat what they find, but including pollutants such as plastics and hydrocarbons. Aquanaria, on the other hand, guarantees that you can enjoy fish raised with total traceability and quality.
In fact, Aquanaria is a full-cycle company: from the eggs, to their development into fry, until they become sea bass ready to face the strong Atlantic currents. Few companies can provide such supervision, Aquanaria is one of them. The eggs of Aquanaria fry hatch in breeding tanks in Gran Canaria, where they remain only until they are big enough and strong enough to be taken out to sea. Before this journey, however, they are vaccinated one by one by the hands of veterinarians. This, along with the fact that they will grow in an ecosystem free of terrestrial pollutants, allows Aquanaria to not give them any antibiotics.
But the advantages of growing in the Atlantic do not end there. Unlike the Mediterranean where there is little wave motion and large temperature swings, the coasts of the Canary Islands offer the best breeding conditions, with strong currents and an ideal, constant temperature year-round. The huge depth nets, within which the fish can move freely, promote the attainment of ideal musculature and an optimal level of fat: if the sea bass swims all day, its flesh is much firmer.
Aquanaria sea bass are fed only feeds composed of three types of bluefish, without any terrestrial animal residue (only vegetable) and without added keratin. Basically, they eat as they would eat in the wild. The food is fed by dropping, when it reaches the end of the net it is lost in the sea. The fish don't have a way to dig into the bottom, as happens in tank farming, where there is a risk that the meat will get that nasty muddy aftertaste. Attention to detail and natural feeding-the secret to uncompromising quality.
Aquanaria, a Spanish company founded in 1973, is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its product.
Farmed for at least 33 months in the icy waters of the Atlantic, Aquanaria sea bass is a fish of the highest quality recognizable by two main characteristics: the flavor, intense and unique, and the texture, firm and soft. Both are achieved through the protein-rich diet and to the natural habitat in which they are raised.

Branzino or Sea Bass is a traditional Mediterranean fish, typically to be baked. Since it is already scaled and gutted, it can simply be placed in a baking dish with seasonal vegetables and greens or in the classic salt-baked recipe.
Alternatively, it can be filleted and portioned into fillets, which will have to be prepared in a very hot pan: starting from the skin side, so as to create a crispy crust (a real treat), a few minutes per side - depending of course on the thickness, the advice is 3/4 cm - and it will be ready for serving.
