Barramundi - Darwin, NT

Barramundi reach maturity as females at about age 5 in the upper reaches of freshwater rivers and streams occurring in a continuous belt around the top perimeter of Australia.

The female Adults move downstream, during periods of flooding, to river estuaries and coastal waters for spawning.

Barramundi have a reputation as Australia's best eating fish particularly if caught in the upper reaches of the northern rivers of Australia where they are found to have a white, fine-grained meat.
