Open water fish of Sydney


Snapper Bream
Snapper are one of the most majestic fish in the ocean..They can produce millions of eggs each year and are capable of recovering from overfishing with better fisheries management. The Yellow fin Bream is common fish in local reefs. Like most fish around Sydney, they are found nowhere else in the world. i.e.they are endemic to Oz.
Jewfish Kingfish

Mullloway are fast growers but are overfished to the extent that they are not often seen in large schools. Fisheries management has failed us all in caring for Jewies. There should be jewies for all of us. Divers, fishers and everyone else.

The solutions: more fish breeding hatcheries; Stop over exploitation of fish.

acknowledge the many sensible fishers who don't fish in the breeding season and allow them to breed.

There is no better spectacle than being surrounded by scores of Kingfish, Seriola grandis .

They suffered from gross overfishing overthe last 30 years. Fisheries management has let us all down badly. Kingfish were fished to the point of being quite rare in the 1980's and 1990's. There is no point in total destruction to the point of taking the very last fish when there is a dead empty ocean next year. They are recovering somewhat over the last decade.
