Hoki is also known as blue grenadier, New Zealand whiptail or blue hake, which is often found in New Zealand and around southern Australia, as well as off the Pa0nd silvery on the sides and belly, which harvested year-round from depths from 600 to 2500 feets water.
Hoki fillet is delicate, white, succulent and tastes slightly sweet and produces a medium flake once cooked. Compared to other white fish, hoki is more flavourful as it has higher fat content but relatively mild taste.
