Pelagic fish

Herring, mackerel, horse mackerel, blue whiting and sardine are pelagic species. ‘Pelagic’ comes from the Greek word for sea, ‘Pelagos’. These fish species travel in schools, throughout the entire water column from just above the seabed to the surface.

Pelagic species often travel great distances and migrate from North to South around Ireland, England, Scotland and in the Bay of Biscay in different seasons.

Customers are always welcome, in consultation with our sales division, to inspect the desired fish species in the examination rooms in our companies.
