giant perch


A name for the barramundi, an Asian sea perch living in mangrove estuaries and creeks around the northern coasts of tropical Australia, from the Aboriginal for "large in size" and can grow up to 2 metres (6 ft) in length. This firm textured white fish can be steamed, grilled or fried, and stands up well to grilling over coals. They look like perch, with the same hump-backed appearance.
