Shad is a rich and oily dark meat fish with a pronounced flavor that is delicious; rich and fatty, with a silky texture.

Shad look very much like plump, silver-green herring.  This may not look like your average piece of fillet, and there's good reason for that!  The bones in shad form such a complex, intricate structure that shad must be cut in a very precise, very exact way.  What's left is a beautiful piece of fillet ... butterflied and boneless.

Shad is very healthy to eat! This is a fish rich in fatty Omega 3s and a great source of protein. Shad are also plentiful in B vitamins, vitamin A, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, etc. The health benefits of eating shad are quite extensive. Eating just two servings of fatty fish, like shad, a week can significantly reduce your risk of dying from heart disease.

  • The maximum reported age for American Shad is 13 years.
  • The Latin name for the American Shad means “delicious.”
  • Shad is typically only harvested from February to May.
  • Shad is a member of the herring family.
