Killers of the deep

Predatory Fish

Discover some of our species...

Golden Trevally

Golden Trevally

The Golden trevally can be found in the tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region and can be easily distinguished from similar species by its uniquely golden yellow pigments and black bands. Juveniles have been observed swimming in schools following large ‘pilot’ fish such as groupers and sharks. They can reach sizes of up to 1.2 metres in length and prey on molluscs, small fish and crustaceans.


QLD Groper

Queensland Groper

Our 1.6 metre Queensland groper - Beau - arrived here in Spring 2013 in no less than 2.5 thousand litres of water, complete with a forklift to assist the move! Growing up to 3 metres in length and comparable in size to some of the largest sharks and rays on display at our aquarium, the Queensland groper is also commonly referred to as the Queensland grouper, Giant grouper and Brown Spotted cod. This mighty fish has a powerful sucking mouth to pull in prey, which includes fish, octopus, crustaceans and even juvenile turtles!


Black Cod

Black Cod

The Black cod, or Saddletail grouper, native to the south-east coast of Australia and New Zealand has been recorded to reach sizes of up to 1.5 metres in length. They can usually be found inhabiting rocky shores or coastal reefs and feed mainly on crustaceans and fish. Due to their near-threatened status, the Black cod has been protected in NSW waters since 1984.
