Yellowtails all 68 of them!!

Still being in Vic ( worse luck) I looked up Yellowtail to see if it was a WA name for a well known fish aussie wide , but according to the free encyclopedia wikepedia there are 68 species of yellowtail fish. So what are the ones you refer to in the Perth region, how big do they grow & are they edible?
