Hake likes to live in deep water and is not a picky predator, feeding on a variety of other fish species (and sometimes smaller hake!). Having struggled in the past, northern Hake stocks are now doing relatively well following improvements in management of the stock. You can get MSC certified hake that is caught in the Cornish Hake gill-net fishery.
