Hake (Merluccius australis)
Hake is usually caught by mid-water trawls at depths of 200 - 800 meters. The Hake caught in New Zealand is a native to our waters, but similar species are also found around South Africa and South America.
Most hake is caught off the west coast of the South Island, but smaller amounts are taken from the southern tip of the South Island and from around the Chatham Islands.
Hake flesh is moist and white with few bones and a delicate texture.
