Atlantic mackerel (sometimes referred to as Boston Mackerel) is wild-caught in the North Atlantic. Mackerel are caught in a variety of ways, including mid-water trawls, gill nets, cast nets, and hook-line fishing methods. Higher quality Atlantic mackerel are landed in the fall after the fish has spent the summer months feeding. The fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids. The moist, light red flesh has a strong taste that is enhanced by grilling and hot smoking.
