"Dark purple-blue along the back, shading to paler iridescent blue on the upper side and mirror-like silver below.  The fins are dark grey.  Hoki have an easily recognisable long, think body with a tapering tail fringed by dorsal and anal fins.  The eyes and jaws are large.  The teeth, small and sharp.

Hoki belong to the Merucciidae family (hakes).  They are one of New Zealand’s most important commercial deepwater species.  Hoki are caught by trawling all around New Zealand, and are most common off the South Island on the Chatham rise, Campbell Plateau and in Cook Strait.

They generally live beyond the shelf edge and are most abundant between 300 to 600 metres.  Adult fish have been found at depths from 50 metres down to 900 metres."
