Where does the Snapper live?

Snapper is a common name for several types of fish that belong to different families and genera.
They have different habitats depending on their species, but most of them are marine fish that live near reefs, rocks, ledges, caves, or other structures on the bottom of the ocean.
Some snappers can also be found in estuaries, bays, and beaches, and some can even tolerate fresh water.
Here are some examples of snapper habitats:
  • The red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) is a fish from the Lutjanidae family that lives in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast of the United States.
    Red snapper adults live on the bottom, usually near hard structures on the continental shelf that have moderate to high relief, such as coral reefs, artificial reefs, rocks, ledges, and caves.

  • The bigeye snapper (Lutjanus lutjanus) is another fish from the Lutjanidae family that lives primarily in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

  • The Australasian snapper (Pagrus auratus), also known as silver seabream, is a fish from the Sparidae family that lives in the waters around Australia and New Zealand.
    It can be found in a variety of habitats, from open water to reefs and in holes and between pins in the gulf.
