Groper
A member of the bass family, groper is caught all year round off the east coast of the North Island, and in the South Island. With a gun-barrel grey body and a silver-white belly, groper are a long lived species and usually weigh 20-30kg.
Groper has firm, lean, white flesh with few bones. It remains moist with heavy flakes when cooked, so it’s perfect for steaks or in curries.
