Milkfish

Chanos chanos

Description:

Due to the large tidal movements of Darwin’s harbour, which can be up to eight metres, the fish can only visit shore for a few hours each day before returning back out to sea with the receding tide.

Not milkfish. These are a type of catfish (whiskered) mixed with Diamond Mullet (Liza vaigiensis).
