Antarctic Toothfish

Antarctic Toothfish (Dissostichus mawsoni)

Antarctic toothfish are found in the cold seas surrounding Antarctica in depths ranging from 200 to over 2000 meters. The main fishery is in the Ross Sea to the south of New Zealand during the summer months when the sea ice thaws. Fishable grounds are accessible depending on the degree of this ice clearance.

They are caught on 'demersal' longlines mainly at depths ranging between 700 -1800 meters. They are grayish with a broad head, elongate body, long dorsal, with large pectoral fins - they by and large resemble an overgrown blue cod in shape and form. Toothfish flesh is white with high oil content.
