Our hunter gatherer ancestors in the British Isles consumed plenty of fish, taking advantage of streams, rivers, coastal areas and lakes. In fact some studies have concluded that up to 60% of a hunter gatherer’s diet was made up of fish.
So in this short video I show how to gut and fillet a mackerel, a much underrated fish.
We teach how to prepare mackerel on our IOL Bushcraft Competency Diploma course.
You can see photos form this course, as well as all of our others, on our Facebook page.
