Gold Coast Fish Species







Gold Coast Fish Species

A page dedicated to fishing anglers from all over the world for specific information regarding what types of fish you can catch in the Gold Coast

Discovery Fishing Charters provides a helpful guide for all fishing anglers to help them summarize and identify the various fish types they could catch. Here we cover two fish seasons, summer and winter for deep sea and game fishing that you could catch while fishing in the Gold Coast. You have the opportunity to catch some fish species in both seasons however during different types of the year various fish are predominant. This is more of a basic fishing guide, we could go more in detail and provide sub categories however we have kept it simple so everyone can understand. As there are legal size and bag limits on fish you can catch, we have only included fish in which is sizeable and eatable. We highly recommend letting all other fish go, if you can't eat don't keep it.

Because size limits are open to change, we have not included this information, for this please visit your local fishing store or Australian government websites to guarantee accuracy.

The Gold Coast, Australia is a 'Southern Fishery' the fish is deep and the water is cold. This is because of the location of Australia/ New Zealand (and various islands in between) located in the 'Pacific Ocean'. Our coastline is the 'Tasman Sea'. We may be biased but our opinion is that southern fish is the nicest tasting fish around. Follow this link to our next page where we show you many recipes on cooking various types of fish that we promise will make your mouth water!
