Australian Salmon

Australian Salmon have a robust body with one continuous dorsal fin (spines & soft rays). Body colour varies from greyish green to steely blue above, usually with yellow to dark spots, and a silver underbelly. The Australian Salmon is not related to the true salmonoid fish but rather to the perch family. The fish are common in large schools with the juveniles often in coastal bays.

Occurs from Tweed Heads through to Port Philip Bay (Victoria) and Tasmania.
