Hawaiian Kanpachi is the premier member of the Amberjack family, prized by Japanese itamae and top chefs everywhere. The species is marked by a dark blue-green upper body with a lavender-tinted belly and elongated fins.

When young, the distinctive bands centered over the eyes look similar to the Japanese symbol for the number 8 (“pachi” or “ハ”), giving the fish its name “kan pachi” or “center eight”.
