Archipelago - Handcarved Wooden Mackerel Bunch

A bunch of three hand painted and carved wooden mackerel by Archipelago are hanging on a string. These fish encapsulate the features of the mackerel, with its lean torpedo shape and its dark blue-black and sivery stripes. These fish measure 27.5cm long and are perfect for hanging in a kitchen or nautical themed room.

From the same noble family as big sporting fishes like tuna and bonito, the mackerel swims fast and ferociously, and attacks anything moving which looks like a fly, which also makes it easy to use bundles of feathers as bait to gather up from the large shoals in which makerel swim. It is a beautiful fish with an irridescent sheen to its dark blue-black and sivery stripes and adult fish can live for up to 20 years though numbers have greatly declined after over fishing in the 1970s. The mackerel likes warm clear waters and winters south off the coast of Ireland, appearing around UK coasts as the water warms in spring and summer.
