Nemipterus virgatus, the golden threadfin bream, is a species of threadfin bream native to the western Pacific, from southern Japan south to northwest Australia including the Arafura Sea. It inhabits areas with mud or sand substrates and the young can be found at depths from 18 to 33 m (59 to 108 ft) while the adults can be found down to 220 m (720 ft). This species can reach a length of 35 cm (14 in), though most are only around 23 cm (9.1 in). It is one of the most important species of commercial fisheries in the East China Sea and northern South China Sea.
