The white hake or mud hake, Urophycis tenuis, is a phycid hake of the genus Urophycis, found in the northwest Atlantic Ocean from North Carolina to Newfoundland, at depths of about 1,000 metres. It grows to about 4 ft (1.2 m).
The coloration is purplish brown on the back, fading to a dirty white beneath. Habits, range and commercial value are the same as for the red hake.
