Ocean Fish Species

Australian Mado

Australian Mado

The silver bodied and black striped Australian mado is native to the east coast of Australia extending from southern Queensland to Tasmania. Growing up to a maximum size of 25cm in length, the mado is typically found amongst coastal reefs and its diet consists of algae, plankton and small crustaceans.


Diamond Trevally

Diamond Trevally

The Diamond trevally bears an uncanny resemblance to the diamond shape, and can be found inhabiting the coastal waters, estuaries and seagrass beds of the Indo-West and Pacific Oceans. The can grow up to 1.5 metres in length and their diet is made up of mainly crustaceans and occasionally small fish. Juveniles have ribbon-like extensions on their fins, tricking predators into thinking they are jellyfish!


Bluestripe Snapper

Bluestripe Snapper

A vibrant yellow fish with striking blue lines the Bluestripe snapper is found as far south as Sydney in the east and around the north of Australia to Perth in the west. Juvenlines prefer shallower waters, including seagrass beds and protected bays, while adults can be found around outer reefs, often in large schools.


Fish Fun Facts

Many scientists now believe that fish have feelings! There's evidence that suggests they experience a wide range of emotions including playfulness, joy, stress and fear. So while a fish's face might remain emotionless, it may actually be happy to see you.
