Importance as a food source
The northern red snapper is a popular game fish and is highly prized table fare. Eight million pounds of this snapper are caught in American waters each year. Most commercial fishing is done with electric and hydraulic reels with anywhere from 2 to 40 hooks on each line. Ladyfish and squid are the two most effective baits for catching the northern red snapper. They are also caught with handlines, bottom longlines, and bottom trawls.

Red snapper. Class: Actinopterygii. Order: Perciformes. They commonly inhabits waters from 30' up to 200', but can be caught as deep as 300' or more on occasion. They keep relatively close to the bottom, and inhabit rocky bottom, ledges, ridges, and artificial reefs, including offshore oil rigs and wrecks. The body is very similar in shape to other snappers, such as the mangrove snapper, mutton, lane and dog snaper. All feature a sloped profile, medium-to-large scales, a spiny dorsal fin, a laterally compressed body, and a caudal tail. Red snappers have short, sharp, needle-like teeth, however they lack the prominent upper teeth found on the mutton, dog, and mangrove snappers. They are a prized food fish and are caught commercially, as well as recreationally. Commercially, they are caught on multi-hook gear with electric reels, as gill netting has been banned in the Gulf of Mexico, where most of the commercial harvest comes from.
