Very white, very firm, densely textured flesh that holds its shape well on cooking. Moist and succulent, ideal poaching fish, and a favorite smoked.

Belongs to the Ophidiidae family (cusk eels). Caught by longline and trawl mainly off the southern South Island coast and on the Campbell Plateau at depths between 300 and 500 metres. Very popular species in Hong Kong, Korea and Asian markets.
