Barramundi are a highly opportunistic species that dominate many tropical rivers.
Delicious and thrilling to catch, they also live in both freshwater and saltwater,
change sex and eat just about anything. Barramundi support substantial
commercial, recreational and customary fisheries, as well as an aquaculture
industry Australia-wide.

Barramundi inhabit a wide variety of habitats in coastal waters, estuaries and lagoons in clear to turbid water up to 40 metres deep. Most commonly, they are found
in rivers and creeks with large catchments and slow, continuous water flow. They prefer water temperatures above 20°C and will take cover around undercut banks,
submerged logs and overhanging vegetation. Barramundi are protandrous hermaphrodites, which means they change sex from male to female. They
mature first as functional male fish and then undergo sex change to become female.

Barramundi have gained a reputation as one of Australia’s finest eating fish and as a result are the most important freshwater-estuarine commercial fish in Australia. The
commercial fishery is managed through low intensity and minimal impact fishing, limited entry, seasonal and area closures, and gear restrictions.
