The Black Bream is a freshwater fish inhabiting most permanent water bodies from dams and billabongs through to sluggish inland rivers and fast flowing rainforest streams. It can grow to over 5kg in weight, but is more often caught around 1 to 2kg. While still alive, the fish can range from a light khaki colour through to almost black, often with a greenish tinge and sometimes with orange or yellow patches. Baits for catching Black Brim on a line can vary from freshwater prawns, mussels or worms or fruit such as Cluster Figs (see Ficus racemosa). Particularly good . . .
