Jewfish is a term that has been used for a number of species of fish, including:

  • Epinephelus itajara, the Goliath grouper
  • Argyrosomus japonicus, was traditionally known as the mulloway jewfish in eastern Australia, but has been abbreviated to mulloway to avoid confusion with the dhufish.[1]
  • Tandanus tandanus, known as the eel-tailed catfish, a fresh-water fish native to the Murray–Darling basin in eastern Australia.
  • Glaucosoma hebraicum, now officially known as the West Australian dhufish, was known as jewfish in Western Australia, which led to confusion with the Mulloway.[1]
