The Flavors of Cuttlefish Ink

Cuttlefish ink has a relatively neutral and delicately marine taste, marked by a slight note of the sea. Despite its vivid color, its taste remains subtle and tends not to predominate over the other flavors of the dish.

Cuttlefish Ink, a Natural Self-Defense Mechanism

Cuttlefish ink, also known as sepia, is a melanin-rich liquid found in the cuttlefish's ink sac. The cuttlefish uses the ejection of this ink to protect itself and escape from dangerous situations, making this substance a defense weapon against its predators.

Espinaler and Its Fishing Methods

At Espinaler, the adopted fisheries feature low-technology characteristics, use relatively low energy levels, operate on a small scale, and require more labor. As a result, compared to modern industrial fishing, these practices generate less waste and exert less pressure on fish populations. Espinaler believes in the importance of contributing to the support of local livelihoods and the preservation of environmental sustainability.
