Also known as saithe, coley has a long tapered body, with a slight blue tint. Specimens range from 500g to 6kg but are usually only available as fillets. This fish can often be a good value option, but needs to be as fresh as possible. The flesh is often a dull off-white colour when raw but lightens during cooking and has a fine flavour.
