Pacific Hake

Also known as: Whiting

Off the coasts of British Columbia, swims the Pacific hake, also commonly known as whiting. With its long, slender body and silvery sheen, this fish is distinguishable by its delicate and fine flaky texture, and hake's subtle taste sets it apart; it's mildly sweet with a hint of brine.

Pacific hake’s light, non-overpowering flavour makes it a favourite for those who appreciate milder seafood adaptable to culinary exploration with seasonings and sauces—but still tastes like seafood! Whether it's the main star of a meal or playing a supporting role, the possibilities are as vast as the ocean they hail from.
