Hi guys,

Any one know what fish is in the Gamma Frozen Whole Fish packs? I am not sure if it's smelt, lance fish or whitebait (or if these are the same thing?)

I'm trying to find out if the fish contains thiaminase.

From my research smelt and lance fish doesn't contain it where as whitebait does. This might be wrong because there's a lot of conflicting articles.

Any help would be great, thanks.

On wiki they say this

As whitebait consists of immature fry of many important food species (such as herring, sprat, sardines, mackerel, bass and many others) it is not an ecologicially viable foodstuff and in several countries strict controls on harvesting exist.

Out of that list of fish only sprat doesn't contain thiaminase

i would guess that it does not say what species it is on the pack as it constantly changes with the time of year it is harvested
