cobia

Distribution: Generally found in the more northern waters of NSW but has been recorded as far south as Jervis Bay.

Size: Maximum length of 2m and a weight of approximately 65kg.

Characteristics: Cobia are best recognised by their very short spines of the first dorsal fin as well as distinctive pale and dark horizontal banding along the side of the fish. At first glance they appear shark-like and have a broad flattened head and slightly overlapping lower jaw. Juvenile cobia have a rounded tail whereas adults have a forked tail.

Confusing species: May be confused with some species of remora, however cobia lack the 'sucker' on the top of the head.
