Went to Morgans (Redcliffe Qld) a couple of days ago to get some fish.

While waiting, I had a sticky beak at what else was available.

They looked like bony bream #??? so I asked. #After much consternation and asking around by staff, I was told "yes" and would I like some. #Politely declined. ;)

I wasn't aware that they could be sold commercially given that there is no netting allowed in freshwater lakes / dams.

Mind you, who would want to eat them!! :o

Hi Luc,
Can be aquacultured (farmed). ::)
Also in rivers & possibly allowed as by-catch.

Thanks Fitzy.

Still can see them worth being eaten.

Hi Reddog,

Bony Breams are a freshwater forage fish present in huge numbers in many of our (Qld) freswater dams.

They are a prime food source for and a major reason why stocked impoundment fisheries for bass and barra are so successful.

If you go to the site below and scroll down, you'll see a photo of one.
