Bluenose (Hyperoglyphe antarctica)
Bluenose are found in the temperate waters of the Southern Hemisphere. They like rough ground on the outer shelf and upper slope, especially from 100 - 500 meters. Bluenose are caught year-round, by trawl and long-lining, mainly around or on offshore reefs, seamounts, or drop-off areas.
They have dark metallic blue-black to grey on the back of the body, shading to silver on the sides and belly. Bluenose is distinguished by a blunt snout and laterally compressed body with large eyes and compressed head.
Bluenose flesh has medium to thick moist flakes and is white when cooked. Bluenose has good levels of Omega-3. Can be cooked using most methods.
