While the species ranges from the Indian Ocean to parts of the Pacific, in Hawaiʻi, the taʻape are an invasive species, competing with native fish and causing economic losses for local fishers.
Its striking good looks—lemony yellow slashed with electric blue—may have people thinking of aquariums rather than dinner. But Conservation International (CI) Hawai‘i wants us to look beyond its pretty skin and to this snapper’s white, delicate and mild meat—brined, butterflied and gently grilled, served alongside nuoc cham, perhaps, or fried whole, the fins as crisp as chips, to be dunked in a fermented garlic sauce. Yes, ta‘ape is beautiful. But it’s also delicious…and invasive.
According to Jo-Anne Ho, a biologist with DAR, who started the Ta‘ape Market Development Project. “It’s a good eating fish".
