A yummy one if caught big enough. I see them on natural bottom and if I see a big enough one, on the stringer he goes. They are good to eat.

Default Big Eye

Definitely a Big Eye Snapper. They don't get big but look at his eyes deep water fish designed to be in a dark environment!

Are Toro and Big Eye snapper the same thing? A buddy of mine who posts here caught something similar in Islamorada recently. I called it a Big Eye. The deckhands called it a Toro.

This is the image which came up under a Toro search:



I realize there are several common names for a particular species of fish.
