The Association of Large Tuna Freezers (A.G.A.C.) was established on July 4, 1980, as an association of owners of tuna freezer vessels of at least 750 registered tons TRB.
AGAC was formed by five companies, although in a few years this was increased to seven, with the aim of representing the interests of a restless group dedicated to the capture of tropical tunas with a global vision that this fishery has since then demonstrated. AGAC is currently formed of nine groups of shipowners being registered in the Nacional Registry of Associations, section 1, number 617556.
AGAC is currently formed of all shipowners of our group, including Spanish vessels (grouped in OPAGAC) and investments of these shipowners in coastal countries such as Ecuador, Seychelles, El Salvador, Curacao, Panama, Guatemala and Belize
