Golden Perch – Macquaria ambigua - 
                                            Yellowbelly

                                             Yellowbelly - eatingEating Yellowbelly

Yellowbelly are a very popular eating fish that is well known across Australia and targeted by recreational fishermen for both sport and eating in the rivers and dams.

Yellowbelly are excellent eating with a clean white flesh that can be cooked any way you like. Unlike Silver Perch, your yellowbelly will rarely get any “off flavours”. You can usually just catch your fish straight from your dam and eat them and they taste great.

Best eating is the smaller fish in the 500 gram to 2.5 kilo mark. Yellowbelly will grow huge — over 20 kgs — but the bigger fish tend to be very fatty. That’s sort of good as it’s the good fat that’s good for you but when we catch really big fish we grill the fillets and this lets most of the excess fat drip out of the fillets. Smaller fish under 2.5 kgs have little or no fat.
