The Sergeant Baker is a reasonably common species in south eastern Australian waters and can be seen on inshore and deep coastal reefs as well as inshore estuarine systems. The Sergeant Baker grows to a maximum size of approximately 60 cm. They are a benthic species that are usually found lying on the bottom of sandy and rocky reefs. They prey on other fishes and swimming invertebrates.
We like them. But they have two sets of bones along the the body of the fish. Go to the trouble of cutting that out and you will have very nice fish finger material. Or make a wonderful fish stock. Or mince it up for thai fish burgers.
