The Hake is a deep-water bottom-dwelling fish. It can be found at depths ranging from 30 to 1000 meters. As the hake grows, its food shifts from krill and prawns to a variety of pelagic fish species such as herring, mackerel, and saithe. Hake can be found throughout the eastern Atlantic Ocean, from Norway and Iceland in the north to North Africa in the south. The flesh is white and fatty, making it ideal for frying, grilling, and baking.
