We smoke our wild Atlantic mackerel over fragrant Mediterranean bay wood and leaves, adding no other seasonings except salt and extra-virgin olive oil. A small fish with the mild taste and meaty texture of a big fish, Atlantic mackerel is an excellent source of protein and vitamin B-12.* Our responsibly sourced Smoked Mackerel packs easily for camping and makes a great pantry staple for quick pastas, salads and more.

    Product Details + Sourcing


    • Wild Atlantic mackerel are a small, schooling fish that occur in great numbers. By choosing to eat these plentiful fish, we’re taking pressure off less abundant, larger species like tuna and swordfish.
    • Our partners harvest the mackerel from a well-managed fishery in the Bay of Biscay, off the coast of northern Spain. The fish are caught by hook and line, with little to no bycatch.
    • Fishermen belong to cofradías, or brotherhoods, that date back to medieval times.

    • Can is 100% aluminum, BPA-free and recyclable (if clean and dry). Box is made with Forest Stewardship Council–certified paper and is recyclable.

    Monterey Bay Aquarium Rating

    What happened?

    In March 2023, Seafood Watch®, a ratings system from California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium, gave a red (“avoid”) assessment of the Atlantic Mackerel fishery in the Bay of Biscay, off the coast of northern Spain. This is where we source our Atlantic Mackerel.

    Why the red rating?

    Atlantic mackerel in the Bay of Biscay belong to a much larger population of mackerel that migrate across the entire Northeast Atlantic, from the coast of Portugal to Icelandic and Scandinavian waters. There’s no international agreement on harvest rates, and the overall population of Atlantic mackerel is being overfished as a result.

    Why the red rating?

    The Atlantic mackerel population in Bay of Biscay itself is still healthy, according to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the world’s oldest intergovernmental science association. Likewise, The Good Fish Foundation, based in the Netherlands, gives this place-based fishery a green rating.

    The trouble happens further north: 90% of the annual Atlantic mackerel harvest comes from northern European waters, from mid-water trawlers and purse seiners, again according to ICES data. These industrial boats overharvest fish, haul in bycatch and damage the ocean ecosystem.

    Our fishing partners in the Bay of Biscay use small, family-owned boats and fish with hook-and-line, a highly selective method that avoids bycatch. We’ll keep monitoring the health of the fishery, working with our partners in academia. As long as the mackerel population in the Bay of Biscay remains robust, we’ll source our Atlantic mackerel from the fishing families of northern Spain.

    How to Make
