Abstract: Eighteen new fish records for the Great Barrier Reef, including
seven new records for Australia, are reported from line-fishing surveys in deeper
waters (> 60 m) off the central and northern sections ofAustralia's Great Barrier
Reef. The following 18 species represent new records for the Great Barrier Reef
region, with the seven for Australia noted with an asterisk (*): the serranids
*Epinephelus magniscuttis Postel et al., E. morrhua (Valenciennes), E. octofasciatus
Griffin, E. radiatus (Day), and *Saloptia powelli Smith; the branchiostegid
Branchiostegus wardi Whitley; the lutjanids Etelis carbunculus Cuvier, E.
coruscans Valenciennes, E. radiosus Anderson, Paracaesio kusakarii Abe, *P.
stonei Raj & Seeto, *Pristipomoides argyrogrammicus (Valenciennes), *P. auricilia
(Jordon et al.), P.filamentosus (Valenciennes), *P.j1.avipinnis Shinohara, P.
multidens (Day), and *P. zonatus (Valenciennes); and the lethrinid Wattsia
mossambica (Smith). Further exploratory fishing effort along the Great Barrier
Reef and in the Coral Sea is likely to result in discovery of more deep-water fish
of Indo-Pacific distribution.
