Blue Moki

Blue Moki, (Latridopsis ciliaris), are a shallow coastal water fish, widespread around New Zealand but more abundant about East Cape. Juveniles live around shallow rocky shores, whereas adults usually school over sandy seafloor up to depths of 150 m. Greyish blue with lines or bands along scale rows, paler whitish below. Usually 50-70 cm in length, adults can reach 90 cm and 10 kg. Blue Moki migrate annually along the east coast in winter to spawning grounds near Gisborne. The diet consists of small crustaceans and molluscs. A good quality eating fish with greyish flesh that whitens on cooking.
