Hebi (Shortbill Spearfish)

Hebi has an amber colored flesh that is softer and more delicate than most other bill fish species. The majority of Hawaiian Hebi comes from long line boat catches although it has been known to strike surface lures as well. It is available year round although more abundantly in the summer months. It has a mild flavor and is often grilled although it can be cooked in a variety of ways.
