ALMADRABAS Snoring We understand as snoring, the traditional cutting of tuna, proceeding the end of the noise that the knife makes when rubbing with the spine. With this manual cut, the different usable parts of the tuna are extracted both for fresh consumption and for the realization of processed products. .

This cutting of almadraba bluefin tuna is done in parts, depending on the degree of greasing that the muscle presents, and not necessarily following planes of differentiated muscle parts..


The structure of a traditional almadraba, which is complex, consists of two essential parts: the tails and the painting. The tails are net cloths of quite hundreds of meters in length, vertically drawn to the bottom, whose function is to direct the tuna towards the frame. The dirt road departs from the coast to the frame, and the tail outside departs from the frame to the sea in. The frame, a rectangular structure composed of nets released to the bottom, is in turn divided into several compartments: camera, buche, bordonal and flake, whose function is to maintain and group the tuna caught for extraction.

The flake is the only compartment equipped with a net bottom that is raised to the surface for fish extraction, in an operation called "lift"..
