Almost the same in appearance to the New Zealand snapper – which is similar to the Australian version but not identical (to the best of my knowledge). Young snapper are Red Bream which then become Squire when a little bigger. The adult is what we call a Snapper (or Schnapper on some menu’s). In southern Australia it is the ‘A’ grade table fish.
The common name Snapper is used everywhere and for many species, mostly from the tropics.
