I've seen smoked cod
Possibly imported. I meant as in the fish you see set out on ice. I once had a discussion with the person behind the counter at PnP (in Cape Town), when I asked if the fish was fresh, and she said yes, it was fresh frozen. Go figure...

You don't get fresh fish except at very selected places on the coast where a restaurant might buy from local fisherman. Everything else is deep-frozen at sea in factory ships.

Angel fish is a good budget fish but nothing like hake
