THE FISH OF FORBIDDEN LOVE

The word “barramundi” comes from the Australian Aboriginal language, and it means “large-scaled fish.”

There is a folktale of aboriginal origin of a pair of star-crossed lovers, named Boodi and Yalima. Their love was forbidden as Yalima was required by their tribe to marry an elder. But the two were determined, and so went against their Elders and ran away together, a “crime” punishable by death.

They were chased by their tribe until they were cornered where the land ended and the water began. They made spears out of wood, and attempted to defend themselves. But they were far outnumbered. Boodi turned to Yalima and told her, “For us to be together, we must go into the sea to live.” They jumped off the cliff, and into the water.

Legend has it that Boodi and Yalima are still in the waters, as Barramundi, hiding from their tribe within the mangroves. The spines on the barramundi fin are believed to the spears thrown at them.
