Elephant Fish are only found in New Zealand.
Most commonly found around the east cost of the South Island at depths of around 200 metres.
The flesh of the Elephant Fish is of good edible quality and closely resembles that of Hapuka (Groper).
Elephant Fish is managed by the Ministry for Primary Industries using the New Zealand Quota Management System (QMS). Regular stock assessments are conducted to estimate fishery stock size and numbers. Scientific studies are also used. From these, scientists can estimate future stock sizes and catch limits.
