Fish ID please

Caught and released near Broome.

Closest guess I've found is a Darktail Snapper?

Thanks guys, really appreciate it! 


Had a look through fishing rules and its grouped in Tropical Snappers and Sea Perch.

No minimum size limit applies, just wondering if they are good eating? They look tasty :)
