About Red Cod
Widely regarded as New Zealand's "everyday fish", Red Cod has a delicate, moist, white flesh with a low oil content and flakes easily when cooked. Suitable for all cooking methods though traditionally it tends to get either deep-fried or smoked.
Red Cod are found throughout New Zealand waters, mainly around the Canterbury Bight and off Westland in South Island. Red Cod abundance levels are managed under the New Zealand Quota Management System (QMS). Stock levels are monitored via commercial catch rates, with trawl survey abundance indices showing consistent changes.
