Lane Snapper

Lutjanus synagris

 

Lane snappers are set apart from other red-bodied snappers by the eight narrow yellow lines that run the length of the fish. They also have an eye-sized black spot on each side just below the dorsal fin. Young lane snappers regularly occur inshore while adults live on snapper banks in deeper water.
