Hapuku Polyprion oxygeneios

Growing up to 1.5 metres long and 100kg, hapuku are found in reefy areas between depths of 30 and 300 metres, all around New Zealand. Hapuku have a large eye, a grey or brown back with an abrupt line of colour change to silver about mid-way down each side and an underslung jaw.

Its white flesh is firm and textured and holds its shape when cooked. Hapuku can be fried, poached, steamed, baked or barbequed.
