A succulent, medium textured, flaky flesh with a low oil content. Gurnard works well with many flavours and styles of cuisines.
Coincidently, the name Gurnard comes from the French and Latin verbs for the grunting sound this fish makes. They have large pectoral fins which open up like wings and ‘feeler feet’ to stir up the sea floor for food.
Widespread across NZ, they are often caught on sandy shell seabeds at depths up to 180m.
