Top Chelsea fishmonger, Rex Goldsmith cradles one the Ajax's bigger hake landed at Newlyn yesterday morning. As Rex says, "one of yours I believe. Banging fresh. Still stiff. Pleasure to have in my shop!"

The Sienna Restaurant in Dorset is a happy hake fan! According to head chef Russell Brown the dish is proving extremely popular with customers to the Dorchester restaurant. No doubt some of the Ajax's fish landed to day will find themselves on a plate of theirs later in the week.
