Well textured flesh with plenty of fatty content around the skin.

Grey-blue body with broad dark bands across the back and silvery-white on the sides and belly.  The body is deep and compressed with large firm scales and the head has thick, fleshy lips. Juveniles live in shallow, rocky regions while adults generally school over the sandy seafloor in depths of up to 150 metres.  Caught year-round off the east coast, from Bay of Plenty to Kaikoura, by trawl or set nets.
