I think its real. Its an AUSTRALIAN charter boat... they have alot of fish over there that we do not. Thats no American Red Snapper. Check out their website.

Where's Karon on this one? Although this one looks a little different, I remember seeing a picture of a fish like this before. You see something that ugly and it sticks with you!

Checked out the website posted- matched the scientific name with my database.....

Here's "Pagrus auratus"...... but the most current, and accepted, scientific name is Chrysophrys auratus...... wouldn't it be nice if the names stayed consistent???? It's not a snapper- the AFS accepted common name is "Squirefish"- it's a member of the porgy family... the teeth in the second picture posted earlier give it away. That second picture made me question my own earlier post about photoshopping..... I'd never seen one at that stage before! Just goes to show Nature has a sense of humor......

Looks like the poster child for "Clean Water", but whatever you do don't let Al Gore see it. He would blame it on global warming.
