Info

(Günther, 1864)

Very special thanks for the first photo of Lutjanus aratus to the famous Australien ichthyologist Dr. Gerry R. Allen.
Dr. Allen has taken his photo at Galapagos.

The Mullet snapper is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found from southern Baja California and the central Gulf of California to Ecuador, including Cocos, Galapagos and Malpelo Islands.

Lutjanus aratus is a reef-associated and common and can be found over hard substrate to at least 50 meters depth.
Adults snapper may form schools consisting of several hundreds of individuals, for example, in Malpelo, this species aggregates in large groups over sandy and rubble substrate to 60 meters.
Juveniles snapper are encountered in shallow waters, including littoral pools and estuaries, and may utilize mangroves and river mouths as nursery grounds.
