This is usually a pelagic creature. Must be lost. Seen swimming in knee deep water in the Merimbula lake just north of the causeway in the sea grass bed.
My friend caught this while fishing for Australian Bass in one of the tributaries. Not too sure what the southern range is on them so u thought I'd upload it here.
Australian fishers, divers and beachcombers have documented some 1500 sightings of marine life they considered uncommon in their local seas. Many of the Redmap sightings were species out of their usual home range (distribution); and others were valuable observations of rare or poorly-studied species that we'll track over time. And it looks like the scuba divers beat the fishers for uploading the most sightings on Redmap! Here's a snapshot of Redmap's citizen science data.
