Mulloway, also known as jewfish or soapies, are a popular target for recreational fishers in Australia.
Mulloway, also known as jewfish, typically spawn in late autumn to early winter, although the exact timing can vary depending on factors such as water temperature and location. In southern Australia, mulloway spawning usually occurs from May to August, while in more northern areas such as Queensland, spawning can occur from March to August.
During the spawning season, adult mulloway move from their deeper offshore habitats into estuaries and nearshore areas, where they congregate in large numbers to spawn. This can make mulloway easier to target for recreational fishers, but it’s important to keep in mind that mulloway are a valuable and often overfished species, so make sure to follow local fishing regulations and guidelines to help protect the population.
