Snapper, Yellowtail- Brazil
Yellowtail Snapper are found in the Atlantic Ocean from New England to southeastern Brazil. In Brazil, they grow at moderate rates, reach sexual maturity by 3 years and can produce many eggs.
Yellowtail Snapper are considered over-exploited in Brazil, and management is mostly lacking in protecting and rebuilding their numbers.
Hook-and-lines are a common fishing method for Yellowtail Snapper in Brazil, which causes little damage to bottom habitat and results in low levels of bycatch.
