African red snapper
The African red snapper, Lutjanus agennes, is a species of snapper native to the coastal Atlantic waters of Africa from Senegal to Angola. They inhabit coral reefs and areas with rocky substrates and are also known to enter brackish waters of lagoons and rivers. This species can reach 139 cm (55 in) in total length, though most only reach 50 cm (20 in). The greatest recorded weight for this species is 60 kg (130 lb). It is of minor importance to local commercial fisheries, but is sought-after as a game fish.
