Wikipedia Abstract

The red gurnard perch or jock stewart, Helicolenus percoides, is a rockfish of the family Sebastidae, found on the continental shelves of Australia and New Zealand at depths of between 20 and 750 m. Its length is up to 47 cm. Also called Ocean Perch, Coral Cod, Coral Perch, Reef Ocean Perch, Red Perch, Red Rock Perch, Red Gurnard Scorpionfish, and Sea Perch. In the month-long NORFANZ Expedition of 2003 which was examining the biodiversity of the seamounts and slopes of the Norfolk Ridge, thirty specimens averaging 1kg (2.2lb), were collected from three locations.
