In fact as far as fishing goes Norfolk Island is quickly becoming known as a “fishermen’s dream destination”. With a 50sq NM seclusion zone around the island, and no commercial fishing allowed, Norfolk Island is virtually an untouched fishing paradise.
There are many varieties of bottom fish, such as the locally known Trumpeter (sweet lip), Silver Trevally, Snapper, Kingfish and Groper (Barcod), to large palaegics such as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna! Norfolk Island boasts the largest Silver Trevally and Snapper in the world.
