Kosher fish is Halachically defined as having fins and scales. Fish is considered Parev until it is prepared in a milk or meat vessel. Jewish law forbids the cooking, serving and eating of fish and meat at the same time.

There are thousands of varieties of fish, sold for food in South Africa and it would be almost impossible to list them all. To assist the Kosher consumer, we have listed the most popular species which are commonly used.
