Gulf of Maine Conservas Line Caught Bluefin Tuna in Olive Oil


Dan’s tasting notes:  Best tinned tuna product I’ve ever eaten, period. Pristine clean flavor and impeccable texture.

“Know your farmer” they say, and most of our customers subscribe to that philosophy. Now, thanks to Keper Connell, we can say, “Know your fisherman.” Every Atlantic Bluefin from Gulf of Maine Conservas is caught by Keper with a rod and a reel, and then carefully preserved in olive oil. In conversation he tells me, “To the best of my knowledge, the domestic or American conservas is a mere seedling in the zeitgeist in the food world, let alone the American palate. I am very eager to see where you take my product. I am also very interested in your tomatoes, when the time is right.”

Small batch and sustainable is the future we advocate for. And not just because it tastes better, but, it does taste better.

Drawing inspiration from this Mediterranean tradition, we preserve our fish in high quality olive oil. All of our tinned seafood products are produced from wild caught fish and lobster in the Gulf of Maine. Canned by hand in an FDA-approved facility, this ensures quality and health standards are met. Our fishing vessel, the F/V Figment, is based out of Rye Harbor, New Hampshire.

    This is the best tuna I’ve ever had. I’ve had two tins of this at this point. The first tin was sublime – melt in your mouth delicate bits of tuna. I was prepared to make a preparation of some sort with it but couldn’t manage to get further than eating is straight for the tin. The second tin I tried was just as delicious, though not quite the same melt-in-your-mouth experience, which allowed me to move further from the tin onto some crackers with some condiments.

    If you don’t have a special event planned where this tuna will be enjoyed, it will become a special event when you open the tin.

    A uniquely firm, hardy and delicious tuna tin. I had it directly from the can with some crackers, although I think the next time I get a can I’d like to try it on a sandwich; not as tuna salad but just as chunk tuna with some pickled veggies perhaps. So good!
