Delicate flavour, good eating flesh recognised as New Zealand’s premium white fillet.

Belonging to the Trachichthyidae family (roughies). Caught year-round by trawling at depths of 750 to 1200 metres on the Chatham Rise, off the continental shelf from Gisborne to Kaikoura, off south Westland and on parts of the Challenger Plateau off the West Coast.  Deep-skinned to remove a layer of inedible, oily wax under the skin.
