San Arawa The Value of what's essential

Client access »

We are an Argentine fishing company whose main activity involves catching hoki, Southern blue whiting and Patagonian toothfish and processing it on board.

We operate in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean, where the waters are characteristically pure, given the lack of pollution. We want to provide our clients with a constant supply of top-quality, frozen-at-sea products.

We believe excellence is obtained through the know-how we gain from the effort and commitment of our people, our constant improvement of processes and our investment in state-of-the art fishing technologies, as well as teamwork, respect and ethical integrity in every aspect of our business.

We believe that we must aspire to respecting the environment and intervening appropriately in the ecosystems where our species develop. We think about the future because it is the only way in which we can guarantee the continuity of our current industrial activity and the health and availability of fishing resources for the generations to come.

We are convinced that the real difference is made by people; this is why we trust on our trained and committed staff to make sure your relationship with San Arawa exceeds all your expectations.


Protein, fats, vitamins and minerals from fish, as part of a balanced diet, are much healthier than those from red meats. For a good health, experts recommend eating fish four or five times a week.

Future consumers will be much more demanding in terms of quality and food sourcing, and of the reputation of the companies that provide them.

This is why our goal is to be a seafood company that will stand the test of time; a company the children of our grandchildren will still talk about. A company that our customers trust, that is exciting and that makes our collaborators, partners and suppliers proud; a company that serves as an example for other companies in terms of ethical behavior and promotion of sustainable practices. A company that shows leadership and commitment for the development of nearby communities and of future generations.
