  • Our British MSC certified Hake Fillets have a stunning subtle flavour and a soft and tender texture. Hake is incredibly versatile and can carry flavour better than many other species of fish, it's especially delicious with grass fed cream and butter!

    We like to simply plan fry Hake, getting the skin nice and crispy and keeping the flesh 'just cooked through'. 

    Hake is an incredible success story and an inspiring example of what can be achieved to help fish stocks recover. As recently as 2006, Hake was a species that was suffering from significant over-fishing and stocks were falling - it was most definitely not sustainable and was highlighted as a species 'to avoid'. Thanks to the fishing community working closely with marine scientists and fisheries regulators, in less than 10 years, the fishery has seen a remarkable recovery. It is now 'Recommended' species from the MSC and the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide.

    Hake boats are now fitted with 'pingers' these are used to warn and scare away dolphins and other cetaceans from the nets. 

    Our Hake are Gill Netted. Gill nets are designed to be selective. Fish smaller than the mesh size are able to pass through unharmed, and those larger than the mesh are deflected away when they hit the net. Fish of the correct size are selected as their heads fit through the mesh and they are then caught by the gills.

    Hake are large predatory fish and a deep-sea member of the cod family. They can be found on or near the sea bed during the daytime, and at night time they move up into mid-water to feed mainly on squid. They prefer warmer waters and are found in good numbers in and around the Devon, Dorset and Cornish coast where stocks are well managed.

    All our Hake is MSC certified and recommended by the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide. 

    Approx 180g per fillet. 1 fillet per pack.
