The Capelin is an almost perfectly camouflaged fish. Transparent olive to bottle green above, its sides are uniformly silvery below the lateral line and the scales are dotted at the margins with minute dusky specks and the belly is white. Its colouring makes it very difficult for predators to see, both from above and from the deep.
Capelin is an excellent source of vitamins A, D and B12. It has a high content of EPA and DHA (Omega-3) fatty acids. Exact values will vary according to fat content.
