John's snapper

The John's snapper lives in the reef-associated, oceanodromous, brackish, marine, depth range - 80 m environment.

John's Snapper (Lutjanus johni) or in Indonesia known as Jenaha is not really popular in Indonesia. It is usually shipped for Malaysia and Singapore market. The maximum length of this fish is 70 cm, however the common size is between 30-50 cm cm. More

Like the John's snapper, it has a dot on its body, which led most anglers to mis-identify the fish. It can be found throughout local waters and commonly found near rocky areas or in places with structures and covers. More

Ang Zho, that is, John's Snapper(Lutjanus johnii) and the one on the right is Ang Zho Kee, that is, Russell's Snapper(Lutjanus russellii). They're both from the Snapper family but are not the same species of fish. More
