HOW MACKEREL MAKES ITS WAY TO YOUR PLATE

Measuring only 60cm in length and travelling in huge shoals, mackerel has to be caught via net as opposed to the traditional pole and line. John West mackerel is typically fished for around the North Atlantic. After being hauled on board and refrigerated in chilled tanks, it’s then transported to the local distribution centre, where it becomes the delicious canned mackerel that you find on your supermarket shelves.
