They have to be over 2'6" long before you can keep them and they grow about 5' long and 150 plus pounds. Average 10 to 15kg

Gosh, the mackeral we used to catch, or find from the fishmonger, in New York and New England were only about 16 inches long.

Here's a photo of my son with a good size fish, can't remember how heavy it was.

This is probably my favourite fish to eat, Threadfin King Salmon, caught locally in our estuaries, this one weighed 36kg [app 80lbs] and 165cm long [5'6"] Pure white flesh and very soft. Average 5 to 8kg

A Redthroat Emperor, popular with the locals.
A Barramundi [an estuary fish] and a Barramundi Cod [a reef fish]
The Barramundi Cod is now protected but it was by far the best eating.

These are some of our locally caught fish that we use in the shop.
