(J. R. Forster, 1801)
The pink cusk-eel, Genypterus blacodes, is a species of cusk-eel found in the oceans around southern Australia, Chile, Brazil, and around New Zealand except the east coast of Northland, in depths of 22 to 1,000 metres (72 to 3,281 ft). Their length is up to 200 centimetres (79 in), and they live for up to 30 years.
In the month-long NORFANZ Expedition of 2003 which was examining the biodiversity of the seamounts and slopes of the Norfolk Ridge near New Zealand, a single specimen weighing 6.3 kg (20 lb) was collected.
