Red Snappers can grow to be 40 inches long and weigh up to 50 lbs. The most common sizes are between 1 ½ to 10 pounds, but catching one in the 30 lb range is not rare at all! This fish has a mild, sweet and nutty flavor. It has a firm, white flesh that is moist and delicate. Some say its texture and flavor can be compared to tilapia.
