Hoki (Macruronus Novaezelandiae)
A fish belonging to the 'Macrouridae' - so close to the hake family. It has good flesh, which breaks of in flakes in a similar fashion to cod. Koki are caught in the deep waters around New Zealand & Southern Australia, but appear in British fishmongers and supermarkets as a substitute for cod or haddock. It is sometimes known as Blue Grenadier.
