Snapper; Lutjanidae

Snapper are medium sized fish with triangular shaped heads, shallow notched tails and a continuous dorsal fin. You can usually find them wherever you go snorkelling or SCUBA diving in the Gulf of Thailand.

Usually seen in really spectacular schools.

Similar in habits and habitat to the Bigeye Snapper, but not always so numerous.

Usually found in the vicinity of coral reefs, they are whitish in colour with a yellowish brown to black stripe on the middle of the side.

This big fellow is maybe better known as a Mangrove Jack.

A common, schooling Snapper - silver with a more or less feint black spot at the upper rear of the body.

Also known as the Spanish Flag Snapper for some strange reason.

There must be some more snappers endemic to this area.
