Cuban snapper

The Cuban snapper lives in the reef-associated, marine environment.

Cuban snapper, which soaked up all the flavor of a well-balanced Creole-style sauce, and was accompanied by sauteed slices of luxuriant sweet maduros and simple white rice. Yum. Don't forgo dessert. More

The cubera snapper or Cuban snapper occurs in the tropical west Atlantic, usually along rocky ledges, at depths of a meter or so down about to about 55 m (180 ft). Young cubera and small adults also enter estuaries and the tidal reaches of streams and freshwater canals. More
