What's for Dinner Tonight?
When Adelaideians feel like eating fish for dinner, a quick trip out into American River on Kangaroo Island generally should do the trick. James reckoned he could pull them in, three at a time, but the camera was under the sandwiches so we hope you will believe us.
King George Whiting are considered as one of the best table fish around, and South Australia is fortunate to have the densest concentration of King George Whiting in Australia. They can reach a maximum length of 70cm, weigh up to 2.5kg, with a maximum age of fourteen to fifteen years. That's not bad at $30 per kilogram, as James found out this day.
On Google earth, rip across to 35. 45. 45 S and 137. 50. 00 E, and you'll see a few more jumping into the boat. Now, where can we catch some lemons?
