THE FISH - Striped Trumpeters are powerful fighting fish. This gives the flesh a flakey yet firm texture. They inhabit the cool waters of Southern New Zealand in the Bay of Plenty and Chatham Island. The pristine water quality offers a clean and subtle flavor with hints of earth and mineral to the overall profile of the Trumpeter. Comparable to Groupers and Sea Bass, the Trumpeter is welcomed by even the most discerning fish lover. The Trumpeter have a "uniform" bass-like shape for easy portioning. The culinary aspects are as vast as the common names of the fish. Lean and clean flavors open up to any preparation.
