Sans Souci Dolphins Spearfishing Records

In compiling these records I found that throughout the reference books I have used, many specie of fish might have several different names, I have endeavoured to use the most common name.

As Queenslanders in different areas do seem to have their own naming competition with certain families of fish, I have been naming the species speared outside NSW waters with the given name preferred by the outstanding book “Fishes of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea” by Randall-Allen-Steene. When claiming a record be aware of the scientific name, as this does not differ and therefore is the most positive source of identification
