Help with ID'ing fish please!

 Can anyone give me a hand with the ID's of these. I had the one down as a camouflage rockcod, is this right. Also what are the legal sizes for these 2 species and are they good eating at all? Thanks!

Tarwhine have 6 rows of scales above the lateral line where a bream only has 4. Check the fisheries site to bag and size limits.

 Not sure how true this is

 Not sure how true this is but have heard they are pretty good eating if you fillet and skin them with care. Apparently it's the slime on the skin or something that makes them taste bad when it touches the flesh

Wirrah

Nothing wrong with wirrah as long as you fillet them and get rid of the skin, better than a heck of a lot of other fish that some people thing are the ducks nuts
