People in the West Country are being encouraged to eat more Hake. The fish has been designated the most sustainable in the country. That means catching it doesn't damage either the population of Hake in the Atlantic Ocean or other that of other species. Neither does it affect the marine environment.
Around 13,000 tonnes of Hake are landed in the UK each year according to the Seafish, which represents the UK's seafood industry. But only 1.5% is eaten in this country. Most is sold to Spain or France.
