Kingfish In more recent times kingfish has almost become a ‘recreationalonly species’. The Total Allowable Commercial Catch is spread widely, making it more of a by-catch than a species the fishing industry targets specifically.
Recreationally, catching a big kingfish, 30kg or above, is the holy grail of sportfishing. The species is held in high regard by recreational anglers with many choosing to tag and return, or simply release, the bigger fish once they have been landed.
Kingfish is held in less regard for its eating qualities, but this is probably an unfair assessment. Prepared correctly, kingfish can be smoked, steamed, poached, baked, fried, barbecued or used as sashimi and sushi.
