Mackerel

(scomber scombrus)

Our mackerel is MSC-certified, caught in a sustainable fishery in the North East Atlantic. 

Mackerel are a migratory fish.  They are caught by our fishing partners as they enter UK waters north-east of Shetland in the autumn and then again in the new year (January and February) as they travel west of Orkney and Lewis.  On being caught they are held in refrigerated seawater tanks so that they arrive at our factory in first class condition. The fishery is carefully managed through the quota system and this has allowed the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to certify it as sustainable.
