Hake is a fish from the same family as cod and haddock, and can grow up to 1 metre in length in their 14 year lifespan. Predominantly found in the colder waters of North Atlantic ocean, hake usually stay in deep sea water during the day, predating near or on the sea bottom, and only come to shallower depths at night.

Because it is a deep sea fish, it’s quite a rarity that an angler would catch a hake, and most commercially caught hake is done with the use of a trawler, where a large tunnel-shaped net with a closed-off tail is dragged along behind a vessel. The hake is then brought in, preserved in salt or ice, and delivered to us, for you.
