SNAPPER (Pagrus auratus)

Famous for its bold, brash colour Snapper is a gregarious dinner guest always up for a party. Characterised by succulently pink fillets exhibiting earthy flavours influenced by its reef habitat.

Provenance

Typically aggregating on open water structures (natural or man made) to spawn, Spencer and Gulf St. Vincent dominate the supply.

SEAsonality

Traditionally, September marks new season Snapper with production peaking over Summer months. November and December dominate peak supply, with June and July the lowest. Production of this long lived species exhibits long-term fluctuations (feast and famine) due to strong environmental influences on its reproductive success.
