Ling is coloured orange-pink and brown above, with irregular, pale, bar-like markings and blotches. It is a bottom dweller, living at depths of 300 - 700 meters, and is usually taken by bottom longlines or bottom trawls. Ling are mainly caught around the bottom of the South Island and over the Campbell Rise.

Ling is a versatile, firm-fleshed fish that can be cooked in practically every way or can be served raw as sashimi.
