Some of Western Australia’s best known species of fish including dhufish, breaksea cod, pink snapper and samson fish inhabit the rocky reef areas. These reef fish are most often found in the moderately deep waters surrounding Rottnest Island. During spring and summer, however, some individuals move into shallower waters and are occasionally caught from shore.
