Orange roughy is a deepwater fish widely distributed in southern Australian waters from New South Wales, south around Tasmania and west to southern Western Australia. These were fished from the spencer gulf in South Australia. Valued for their soft, moist white flesh and mild taste they are best battered or crumbed, but can grill nicely to.
Cobbler are ‘endemic’ to Australia, meaning they’re only found here. They live in the southern half of the country, in coastal and estuarine waters up to about 30 metres deep. Cobbler has soft, delicate flesh that’s good to eat

Feasting on all sorts of things they are a bit of a forager on or near the ocean floor with Crabs of all shapes and sizes including Blue Swimmer’s, Octopus, assorted fish and even Rock Lobster making up their diet.
