black snapper

Recommended Posts

many years ago I used to do a lot of night fishing for snapper between Seacliff an Hallet cove with very good success one night I caught a black snapper it weighed about 15 lb in the old scale It was very much like a bream in colour but much darker the museum at that time told me it was an un commonly caught  black snapper I often wonder if any are caught today  I would be interested to know an if they have any information on the black snapper

There is a fish called Black snapper it looks more like a large bream,they are usually caught in the Pacific and Indian oceans.Every now and then strange things do show up in our gulf such as elephant shark at Price and on one occasion a massive sun fish crusing the shallows of the upper reaches of the spencer gulf.

I was going to say they must live amongst the kelp, pun intended 😉 like jm said I've also heard of the same black snapper and recall them being around 50-60 cm so i doubt it's one of those but im no expert, but interesting i shall ask around 👍
