Tarakihi is highly sought after by both commercial and recreational fishermen. Its eating properties belie it’s somewhat plain appearance and it is considered by the culinary world as one of New Zealand’s ‘best kept seafood secrets’. Tarakihi compare favourably even to the much more popular New Zealand snapper in terms of both flavour and texture.

Tarakihi have medium to firm white flesh, suitable for most cooking methods.

Wild caught Sea Bream/Tarakihi are common throughout New Zealand’s inshore waters. They are silver-grey in color with a blue-green sheen. The belly has shading of silver and white, and there is a distinctive black band between the head and dorsal fin.
