So, what is merluccius capensis?

Merluccius capensis, also known as Cape hake, is a deep-sea fish species that is commonly found in the waters of the South Atlantic Ocean, particularly along the coast of South Africa. With its firm, white flesh and delicate flavor, this fish is a favorite among seafood lovers and a popular ingredient in many dishes, including fish and chips, stews, and soups. Cape hake is also known for its high nutritional value, as it is a good source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins D and B12. This sustainable seafood choice is caught using environmentally friendly methods, making it a responsible choice for both consumers and the planet.
