Fish Id

Caught these while in Karratha in 50meters of water. Not sure if they are good eating.
I put em back anyway.

Anyone know what they are?

I think the top one is a juvenile Indonesian Seaperch, definately a seaperch of some variety.  Likely to be undersize (30cm) = Stripey Sea Perch (spanish flag) = 30cm legal limit.

Bottom is a Tomato  Rockcod

Was at Floreat Drain last night with no luck - One small Tailor about 10:30. Using ganged hooks and Mulies on a pat rig. Had a stingray flyby though. Hope you guys do better tonight.

Top one is what we call a Hussar in Qld.  Apparently good eating, though we usually use them for bait.

 I'd call the second one a Coral Cod.  The fish we call a tomato cod has a more snub nose on it.  Very tasty.

Yep we call the top one a hussar and I agree on the tomato cod, they are real good eating we occasionally get them fishing deeper 60m+

Definately a Tomato Rock Cod

Wed, 2008-02-27 19:50

Definately a Tomato Rock Cod and the other one is a seaperch of some kind, either an juvenile indonesion sea perch or a striped sea perch.
