Coley

Pollachius Virens

Since Cod and Haddock are premium species with high commercial value, Coley is definitely a tasty, sustainable substitute. Often referred to as either Saithe or Coalfish, it’s a cheaper member of the Cod family that should not be underestimated. Best enjoyed at its most fresh, Coley’s fine flavour and flaky texture is unleashed when deep-fried in batter or breadcrumbs, or poached for use in fish cakes, pies, casseroles and soups.

Coley are a gregarious species that are native to the cooler North Atlantic Ocean, but they usually enter coastal waters during the warmer seasons, and returns to deeper depths during the winter. A typical size for this demersal fish would be 13 inches in length and 6kg in weight, but they have been known to reach an impressive 47 inches and weigh up to 10kg.
