    Abstract

    The West Coast Inshore Demersal suite includes about 100 scalefish species which are caught by a number of different fisheries that operate in the West Coast Bioregion (WCB). The most important species of this suite are the West Australian Dhufish (Glaucosoma hebraicum) and Pink Snapper (Pagrus auratus). Substantial catches are also taken of other species from this suite, such as Red Throat Emperor (Lethrinus miniatus), Bight Redfish (Centroberyx gerrardi) and Baldchin Groper (Choerodon rubescens). The West Coast Offshore Demersal suite, which occurs in offshore waters (> 250 m), includes Eightbar Grouper Hyporthodus octofasciatus, Hapuku Polyprion oxygeneios, Blue-eye Trevalla Hyperoglyphe antarctica and Ruby Snapper Etelis carbunculus.
