Cornish MSC Hake Skin On Fillets x 2, 300g
In 2015, The Cornish hake fishery became the first such fishery in the UK to meet the Marine Stewardship Council’s internationally recognised standard for sustainable fishing. Cornish hake had been a popular species for many years, but the stock was left slightly depleted in the late 1990s.
Thanks to changes brought in by the fishermen and a new management plan set up in 2001, hake stocks have recovered to over double their low point. One of the fishery’s key strengths is the use of nets with a larger mesh size than the legal requirement. These nets only target the larger hake and allow the smaller juveniles to swim free, leaving more fish to reproduce.
Hake is one of the jewels of the Cornish catch. Our hake is caught by gill net, making it highly sustainable.
Hake is a delicious white fish with a flaky texture. We always sell our hake skin on as the meat is very delicate.
