A wide variety of scalefish species, as well as squid and octopus, are fished by using lines, nets and spears. The most popular fish taken are flathead, flounder, Australian salmon, trevally, warehou, trumpeter, morwong, bream, cod and various reef fish. Stocks of some species, particularly of the reef fish, have come under increasing fishing pressure.

Bag limits have now been introduced for all scalefish species.
