Fish Facts » Snapper
Snappers are a family of perciform fish, mainly marine but with some members living in estuaries, and entering fresh water to feed. Some are important food fish. One of the best known is the red snapper. About 100 species of snapper are currently recognised, divided into about 16 genera. A very large number of fish species have "snapper" in their common name; most but not all of these are members of the family Lutjanidae. Almost all the 60 or so species in the genus Lutjanus have common names including the word "snapper".
They live at depths of up to 450 meters
Most feed on crustaceans or other fish, though a few are plankton-feeders.
They can grow to about a meter in length.
Snappers are found in the tropical and subtropical regions of all the oceans.
