Reading Time: 4minutes Snappers and Groupers are the nation’s favorite food fish. Every summer, thousands of anglers hit the coast to fill their coolers with tasty fillets.
You can find them on fish counters and restaurant menus all around the country. This article breaks down Snapper vs. Grouper by looks, size, taste, and more to try and answer that question.
Grouper and Snapper are both big families, with a variety of weird and wonderful fish in them. Groupers have big, wide mouths, built for inhaling fish whole.
Groupers are generally rounder and more thickly built than Snappers. A fully-grown Red Snapper is much beefier than a young Gag Grouper.
Cuber Snapper have big, wide mouths, just like Groupers. If you’re not sure what you’ve caught, it’s best to check it against common species in your area.
These titans can top 1,000 pounds, and even “small” adults are in the triple digits. The biggest species of Snapper in North America is Cuber.
After Cuber, the next biggest species is world-famous Red Snapper, which maxes out at around 40–50 pounds. Goliath Grouper aside, there are several species which blow the biggest Snappers right out of the water.
The world record for Warsaw Grouper is a staggering 436 pounds 12 ounces. Speckled Hind, Gag, and Snowy Grouper all outgrow Red Snapper.
Let’s start with the elephant in the room: Red Snapper, aka America’s favorite fish. Every summer, anglers flock to the Gulf of Mexico in their thousands to bag one.
They’re so popular that the Gulf Red Snapper season is one of the most tightly-regulated on the planet. Red Snapper have a delicate, juicy meat that very few fish can compete with.
Scamp produces large fillets of sweet, white flesh that many people swear is even tastier than Red Snapper. Whether you’re reeling in Yellowtail Snapper on a shallow reef or hauling up Yellow mouth Grouper offshore, you’re in for a lot of fun and a tasty treat to show for it.
What's important is that you did it -- you ventured beyond the safety of the shore and triumphed in the age-old battle of human vs. sea creature. For the adventurous angler, booking a charter is the easiest and most popular way to get to the denizens of the deep.
“A charter or guide provides you with an experienced crew and a convenient, carefree way for just about anyone to enjoy a day of fishing or just a day out on the water,” said Linda Krupp, captain of Action Charters in Miami. They're also more likely to go after the big fish, such as marlin, or to troll for tuna.
Mark has a rep for going after game and is much in demand with serious anglers and celebrities. Otherwise, he likes to catch and release anything the angler can't eat and objects to killing a fish just to hang it on the dock and take a picture.
Though you can find a charter boat anywhere there's water, the largest fleets are in the Panhandle, particularly Fort Walton Beach and Destiny, and the Keys. The other advantage over renting a boat and winging it on your own is that the captain knows where to find the fish, which is pretty much the point of the whole outing.
When you catch a food fish -- grouper and snapper are popular -- Krupp and Breech have it cleaned and filleted for you when you get back to shore. “It's the epitome of sport fishing,” Krupp agreed, though most people are happy when they catch anything.
Unlike food fish, sailfish and their billfish brethren are always released. Or you can take the photo and some measurements to a local taxidermist and have a replica made to impress the folks back home.
Trophy fishing brings up another issue: the stereotype of deep-sea fishermen is that they're all macho, hard-drinking, Hemingway-wannabes. Krupp finds that youngsters especially like to catch bait fish, something she does at the beginning of a charter on her way out to the big water.
As for females, Krupp finds that they usually come on the boat simply to accompany their menfolk and plan to spend the trip catching rays, not some slimy old fish. These are big fish -- snapper and grouper routinely run 20 to 50 pounds or more and billfish can be 7 feet long and weigh several hundred pounds -- and they have to be gaffed to be hauled onto the boat.
The process can be a little messy, especially in the eyes of those who have trouble killing anything bigger than a mosquito. Krupp makes a point of keeping her operation clean.
More than 132,000 jobs statewide are directly related to fishing, hunting and wildlife-related recreation. More than 2.4 million people participated in the sport, resulting in retail sales of almost $2.4 billion, sales tax of $143.7 million and a total economic impact of almost $4.5 billion.
The only activity with more participants was wildlife viewing with 3.9 million, but the related sales and economic impact figures were lower. Nationally, some 76 million Americans over 16 -- that's 40 percent of the population -- enjoyed some form of wildlife-related recreation in 1996, according to a recent study by the U.S.
Whatever your economic participation, as long as you got your fish -- or two or three -- the trip was worth the price of admission. The cost of pecans fluctuates depending on the farming conditions in any given year.
The price can vary depending on the time of year, and is often dictated by supply and demand. For example, during the Thanksgiving holiday, pecans are in higher demand than other times of the year.
Purchasing them in the shell allows the consumer to control the amount of salt on the pecans. Pecans are healthy nuts that provide a lot of flavor.
