Cape hake Merluccius capensis © Scandinavian Fishing Year Book

Hake are deep-sea members of the Cod family, found on the continental shelf and slope to depths over 1,000 metres. 

They are a mild fish, having a more subtle flavour than cod. Hake is considered one of the best fish in the whiting family because of its firm, sweet, white meat and medium flake. Try some of our sustainable hake recipes below!
