Barred grunter

The Barred grunter lives in the benthopelagic, potamodromous, freshwater environment.

This persistence was to pay off a bait later as a barred grunter came to the surface, sadly it was 2cm undersize and it was returned to the water to grow bigger amid several choice words and utterings of me being cursed being said: Barred Grunter More

The Barred Grunter is often found in estuaries where it feeds on prawns, crabs, molluscs and small fishes. In Australia it is recorded in tropical waters from Shark Bay, Western Australia to northern New South Wales. More
