Fish Species Of North Queensland
There is much confusion surrounding the common names of our Tropical reef fish and its no wonder when you can catch a “Sweetlip“, a “Tricky Snapper“, a “Red Throat Emperor” an “Emperor”, a “Spangled Emperor”, and even a “Long Nosed Emperor”, all of which are members of the Lethinus family. And then someone will even call it a Snapper. Phew !
Use your imagination when you next hear the name – who really knows what fish you are catching?
