One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A large sporting or food fish of warm coastal waters.
- ‘It is guarded by a large resident moray eel and jewfish.’
- ‘Last Sunday off Evans Head, nearly every boat returning to port had a nice catch of fish - snapper, teraglin, flathead and jewfish.’
- ‘I saw one angler take three big jewfish all on his homemade lures.’
- ‘There have also been some good jewfish and tailor taken from the headlands and breakwalls.’
- ‘How can you choose between the ocean trout, jewfish, gemfish, barramundi, blue eye and flathead on the menu?’
- ‘There have been good reports of tailor from Ballina's north wall and Patches Beach, and at least three large jewfish from the north wall.’
- ‘Apparently, he is usually seen in the summer when a female jewfish shows up to keep him company.’
- ‘The best report I've heard to date was of good numbers of jewfish coming from the Ballina South Wall in the rough water caused by the wind and rain.’
- ‘Across the cave, the jewfish is being cleaned by some minute gobies.’
- ‘In the early stages of the dirty water, there were some very nice large jewfish caught off both the north and south walls.’
- ‘The photo today is of a good catch of jewfish from offshore at Evans Head.’
- ‘The white water that can be stirred up with a little wind often produces the conditions from which we can catch good tailor and jewfish.’
- ‘There are many good jewfish lures on the market.’
- ‘He appears just as I'm about to start on a roasted jewfish with prawns, and offers a sturdy paw.’
- ‘Already there is a little colour in the water, which should be great for bream and jewfish around the entrances.’
- ‘There are also, in separate sections, adult turtles and big fish like jewfish, tarpon, snook and stingrays.’
- ‘Hunted nearly to extinction, the shy, greenish-grey jewfish made a comeback in these waters when laws to protect them were passed in 1990.’
- ‘Today's photo is a dream of nearly all anglers, to catch two jewfish this size.’
