Barramundi (Lates Calcarifer)


The Barramundi, also known as the Giant Perch is a fish that is rarely seen in aquaria, most likely due to its enormous adult size. Barramundi can grow well over a meter and must be kept in very large aquariums. Depending on the diet of the fish, individuals can double their size for the first 6-12 months of their life. An interesting fact… All Barramundi are born as males. They begin their lives in freshwater, where they remain until they reach sexual maturity
