The Barramundi (Lates calcarifer) can grow to over 55 kgs and is found throughout the Indo-West Pacific, including northern Australia. They are protandrous hermaphrodites, which means they change sex from male to female during their lifetimes. After spawning several times as a mature male, the Barramundi moves from freshwater habitats to saltwater river mouths, triggering a change in sex. They are a popular angling and eating species in the tropics.
