Sand Whiting (Sillagindae) Photographs and Information



Sand Whiting are also known as Silver whiting, summer whiting. They belong to the Family Sillaginidae (whitings).

Sand Whiting live in inshore waters, coastal beaches, bays coastal lakes and are often found in rivers and estuaries as far as the tidal limits. They swim in large schools.

Whitings diet consists of worms, small crustaceans and small fish

Whiting are a popular recreational fish, caught on Rod-and-Reel and Handlines from beach or boat using live bait of worms, soldier crabs and yabbies. Have good fighting abilities and are a good table fish. Colour ranges from olive to sandy brown above and white below. Minimum legal sizes apply.

Available wild-caught, it is a marine and estuarine fish which schools over sandy bottoms of open bays or estuaries (travelling as far up river as the tidal limit) and near ocean beaches along the length of the eastern coast, mainly at 10-30m. Itís caught mostly off southern Queensland and NSW using beach seines, in estuaries using haul nets and gillnets, and sometimes as bycatch of inshore prawn and fish trawling. It looks similar to Yellowfin Whiting as both have bright yellow lower fins.

Fishing Angling for Whiting:

Whiting are generally caught using rod-and-line and handlines from shore or by boat with live baits, such as worms, soldier crabs and yabbies (nippers). Fresh peeled prawns can also be used.

 


Cooking Sand Whiting:

Whiting, when cooked have a delicate tasting, white flesh, but many fine bones. Whiting has a delicate, sweet flavour, low oiliness and moist, medium-textured, flaky flesh with fine bones, which are easily removed. The edible skin can be left on and the bones make excellent stock.


Commercial Fishing for Sand Whiting:

Seine, gillnet and trawl caught; heavily fished across much of the range but a robust, fast-growing group of species showing stable landings; gillnet and seine net caught Whiting associated with less bycatch and habitat damage than trawl caught; uncertainty over stock status in WA.
