ABSTRACT
Hake, the name of two groups of ocean fish related to the cod. Hake vary from about 18 inches to 4 feet (45 to 120 cm) in length. They usually feed at night in shallow water. Among the true hake are the silver hake, stockfish, Pacific hake, and European hake. The silver hake, or whiting, is a two-foot (60-cm) species caught off the New England coast. The stockfish is common off southern Africa. Both are important food fish. The Pacific hake, found from Puget Sound southward, and the European hake are little used as food.
