The fish grows to 20 pounds; the record is over 45 pounds.

Length is two to three feet.

This fish lives to 15 years or mor

About 8 million pounds of snapper are taken every year in the U.S. and nearly 5 million pounds from Mexican waters.

Because young snappers live in shallow water, they are subject to capture through shrimp trawling. For example, each year in the Gulf of Mexico, shrimp trawlers catch around 35 million young red snapper that are discarded, usually dead. (A trawl is a net shaped like a large sock. It is dragged behind the boat, scooping up anything and everything in its path.)
