What are Coley?

Coley are round fish, caught in the North East Atlantic by demersal trawlers. It is possible to achieve a yield of 55% from a whole Coley fish (with head on). MSC certified Coley are available to buy and offer a medium, sweet flavour. Coley are off-white in colour, with a slight grey marbling.

Similar to Cod, Coley are firm but tender, with large flakes, easily separated. The flavour of Coley is clean but buttery and they are an excellent alternative to more traditionally served Cod and Haddock.
