Mouth-watering Mackerel from the North Atlantic.
Scomber-Scombrus is the scientific name for mackerel, but you don’t really need to know that. Neither do John West. What’s important to us is where to catch them - which is mainly in the North Atlantic. The mackerel make this easier by travelling towards the coast to feed in huge numbers throughout the summer months. They are a long slender fish often reaching 60cm in length and they’re fast, very fast. Nutritionally they are rich in Omega 3 and when we catch mackerel they have reached their optimum fat content.
