Caption

Schoolmaster snappers (Lutjanus apodus) hunting for prey amongst coral rubble. Behind the snappers is a trevally (silver), while at lower left is a sharptail eel (Myrichthys breviceps). The schoolmaster snapper inhabits reefs in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. It is found as far north as Massachusetts, USA, but is more common in the Caribbean and around northern South America. It is also found in the eastern Atlantic, off the coast of western Africa. It feeds on smaller fish, crustaceans, molluscs and cephalopods (such as squid), and can reach a length of over 65 centimetres. It is often caught as a food fish as it has fine meat. Photographed off Bonaire Island in the Netherlands Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea.
