Yellow finned bream get
their name from their yellow fins. They are a silvery grey colour on top with a white
underside. They are an excellent sporting and eating species and the staple fishing
species for most recreational fishermen in coastal NSW.
Bream are another species under culture at Aquablue Seafoods. At this stage they
are just a sideline species. Unfortunately Bream are relatively slow growing so are
not a key target species for us at the moment. They do grow large - over 4kgs in size
- but take a long time to get there … over 7 years. Generally smaller bream around the
400 gram mark take 3 years to reach this size so are not a commercially viable
Small bream do make great aquarium pets and, being quite hardy, will live in both
marine and freshwater. Most of our bream breeding activities are focused on supplying
fingerlings to the aquarium trade, other aquaculture facilities and for research
Bream are winter breeders, breeding in marine salt water.
