Baldwin and Neira (1998) studied the larvae of the western wirrah (A.
patachonicus were as conspicuous as those found in western wirrah and koester, and the preopercular spine at the posterior angle was the largest one among all 3 species.
patachonicus was lower than the number observed in larvae of both the western wirrah and koester (Brownell, 1979; Baldwin and Neira, 1998).
Further, Baldwin and Neira (1998) stated that western wirrah would settle between 10.
The Felix Prospect is also located within an established oil production fairway between the Moonfish oil field and the Wirrah discovery while it is structurally similar to the former.
