Info

(Forsskål, 1775)

Lutjanus argentimaculatus, also known as Mangrove Red Snapper or Mangrove Jack is widely distributed in the Indo-West Pacific from Samoa and the Line Islands to East Africa, and from Australia northward to the Ryukyu Islands (Allen, 1985). It is a marine species but is also found in brackish mangrove estuaries and the lower reaches of freshwater streams. It migrates offshore to deeper reef areas, sometimes penetrating depths exceeding 100 m.

The colour of mangrove jack is quite distinctive, varying from bright reddish-brown to dark olive-brown. Fins have a pinkish hue, with the tail generally a darker shade. Each scale has a dark spot, which gives the appearance of cris-crossing lines on the body. Juveniles possess a blue line below the eye, which is also often evident on the adult. The mangrove jack is an extremely strong fighter and regularly finds shelter among submerged snags, making them a very challenging recreational species.
