Pacific Whiting

Pacific Whiting – Merluccius productus

The most abundant species on the West Coast is Pacific Whiting. Commonly called whiting, hake, or Northern hake, these silvery fish can grow to three feet in length and can be found between Vancouver Island and Northern California. Whiting have traditionally been used for Surimi manufacturing, including imitation crabmeat. Pre-ordering your containers is recommended, as this product tends to sell quickly.
