Kahawai are fished all around the North Island and north of Kaikoura in the South Island. They are torpedo shaped with a dark green back, moving into blue/grey flanks with a white belly. They form massive schools and feed on small fish and krill.
Kahawai flesh is medium to dark which lightens when cooked. It’s suited to baking, marinating, smoking, frying and in curries.
