Snapper – Pink
Catch fish in deep water (180 to 600 feet) using vertical hook-and-line gear. Best to catch between October and February.
Keep chilled in ice. Can be frozen for longer storage.
Pink snapper has light brown skin but is brighter depending on whether it dwells over hard bottoms or soft bottoms. The flesh is firm, delicate in flavor, and clear light pink in color (Hawaii Seafood Council, 2012).
