Trevally (Pseudocaranx dentex)
Trevally belong to the Carangidae family. They are blue-green dorsally and silvery white on the belly, with a yellowish sheen running along the length of the fish. A small dark blotch often appears on the upper gill cover.
Trevally is common around many parts of the North Island and the top half of the South Island. They are most abundant at depths of about 80 metres and are caught throughout the year.
Trevally have medium to soft fillets with a low oil content. The flesh is marbled pink with a darker fat line that can be filleted out. They are excellent smoked.
