Any ideas?

Longfin Perch

Mon, 2016-02-08 00:31

Longfin Perch - Caprodon longimanus
 

Longfin Perch females are pink to red and males are pinkish with yellow spots and a large dark blotch on the rear of the dorsal fin.  The dorsal fin is long-based and the caudal fin is emarginate.  The pointed pectoral fins are longer than the head. 

Longfin Perch grow to 58cms in length. 

They are very good table fish. 

In Australia, Longfin Perch are found from Shark Bay Western Australia, around the southern coast and up to southern Queensland.
