Herring and mackerel

Herring and mackerel

Herring and mackerel are seasonal capture fisheries, exploited all round the islands of Shetland as the shoals move on their feeding and spawning migrations.

One of the major reasons that Shetland herring and mackerel are so good is that when they are caught around Shetland, they are in their prime.

The feeding season for each species has just finished and the flesh is in top condition, rich in both protein and Omega-3 oils.
