Red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) are one of the Gulf of Mexico’s signature fish.  They are extremely popular due to their white meat and delicious taste, as well as a top predator in the Gulf ecosystem. Their predatory behavior makes them a great fighting fish who uses their weight to their advantage. Red Snapper can live up to 50 years and grow to over 40 in.

Red snapper have been severely overfished in the Gulf but are now on their way back. The Gulf snapper population reached its low point in the late 1980s, but since then science based and effective management have put the red snapper on the road to recovery. Since 2009 catch limits for snapper have steadily increased.​
