Hi Mangajack,

I was just about to post something similar. It is almost certainly regarded as a very good fish, but not worthy of the attention it would receive if it were caught here. Tarwhine are reported to reach at least the size of the one in the photo in southern Africa.

We have been dudded in terms of breams here in Australia.

    when I was a kid i lived in Weipa for a few years, we would regularly catch 50cm+ bream, and throw them back, would rather catch threadfin or Barra for better chewing, a bream this big would be well over 40 years old, I have seen bream this big before but never in south east Queensland.
