Description: Hake. The hake is a long, lean member of the cod family. Although they can grow up to 1 meter (3 ft) in length, the average size now is about 30-50 cm (12-30 inches). They are found in temperate and cold waters. During the day they lurk on the bottom, but rise in the evenings to hunt for fish such as herring and mackerel. Can also describe salt cod.
