WHY IS RED SNAPPER SUCH A POPULAR FISH TO CATCH?
Red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) is one of the Gulf of Mexico’s signature fish.
Red Snapper Fish are extremely popular among recreational fishermen and a prized offering at restaurants and seafood markets, as well as a top predator in the Gulf ecosystem.
Here are few facts about this iconic fish:
Red snapper can grow to about 40 inches, weigh up to 50 pounds and live more than 50 years.
They begin to reproduce when they are about two years old, spawning from May to October along rocky ledges or coral reefs.
Fertilized eggs float on the surface and hatch within a day. Only a month later, the young fish settle out of the water column in shallow waters, and as they get older, they move to structured habitat where they will mature and eventually move to the deeper waters of the Gulf.
Bigger, older red snappers produce many more eggs than young ones. One 24-inch female red snapper (about 8 years old) produces as many fish as 212, 17-inch females (about 5 years old)
