Welcome to IsThisKosher.net!
If you keep Kosher but still eat fish at restaurants and markets that aren't strictly Kosher, it can be challenging to know what you can eat. The list of kosher fish can be very confusing. Often times, the fish are familiar ones, just listed with an uncommon name or in a different language. We hope that this website will be a useful resource to help clarify which fish are Kosher and which are not.
How does this Website Work?
IsThisKosher.net has compiled an extensive list of all kosher fish, cross listed with their scientific name and common names in multiple languages. We've done our best to be as comprehensive as possible but it's likely that the list isn't perfect. We're always working to refine our kosher fish database.
What makes a Fish Kosher?
A Kosher fish has both fins and scales and is not a bottom feeder. More resources are available here
