Snapper are a schooling fish, they tend to travel in large groups of similar size and age and are extremely tough and able fighters. A highly edible fish and as with any fish, the juvenile snapper has a sweeter and tenderer flesh and is ideal for baking whole, where as the mature snapper is perfect for dissecting the meat sideways into steaks, for frying or baking.
The Gummy Shark is a slender, grey shark with white spots along the body and flat, plate-like teeth for crushing its prey. Gummy shark meat is often marketed as “flake”. Their boneless, sweet white fillets have made them particularly popular with anglers. The School Shark is also a regular by-catch when fishing for Gummy Shark.
King George Whiting
The King George Whiting is readily distinguishable from other Australian whitings by its unique pattern of spots, as well as its highly elongate shape. King George whiting are often found in bays and protected waterways over sand and seagrass beds, also venturing out onto deep continental shelf reefs during adulthood. The KGW is also heavily targeted by recreational anglers, who value the whiting for its sporting and eating qualities.
Yellowtail Kingfish are an oceanic surface fish congregating over inshore reefs, around rocky headlands, deep water jetties and channel markers as well as offshore over ocean rocks, offshore reefs and around islands. They appear during the warmer months of summer and autumn.
