a high value table fish

game on...

fantastic size! rs- ruby snapper

peace on earth.. hehehee his 2nd catch!

etelis carbunculus (ruby snapper) color implies on its back, upper sides and all fins in deep pink to red, white or pinkish on the lower sides & belly... dorsal & anal fin bases without scales

inhabit rocky bottoms and feed on smaller fish, squid, shrimp and crabs.. high-speed jigging too! (25 rs were hooked.. tiredness had made them to depart the spot. hope those deepwater snappers 're still active & boogieing, now)

fighting characteristics would be very aggressive strike immediately followed by a quick run for shelter... excellent gamefish!

it's also known as rubin snapper & deepwater snapper
