    You're first post - welcome to the site.
    To get a more accurate answer, you should try and include some details of where it was caught etc.
    People here are interested in the details.
    It's not a good idea to kill a species you can't identify, if it was undersize or protected, you could be some hot water.
    There's a great phone app put out by Fisheries you can install, it will help you identify species and has details on size and bag limits.

    Thanks Nugget and apologies for the lack of info.

    Measured 54 cm so I new he would fall in the min-max for most species. Only reason I kept it was because it was gill-hooked and was bleeding all over the place.

    Thanks again!

    If it is a sambo, it is an unusual catch for that location.
    Amberjack are more common in our waters, samsonfish further south.
    Usually an offshore species, you don't hear of many caught in the Bay.

    My guess is a blackbanded amberjack but they are also an offshore species.

    Probably a blackbanded amberjack, the juveniles which do stray into the southern part of the Bay. It is difficult to do a definitive id as the dorsal fin can't be seen properly.

    Amberjack and Samson fish have a minimum legal size of 50 cm while the highfin amberjack has a minimum legal size of 75 cm. The blackbanded amberjack does not have a minimum legal size.
