Donating to the Museum

The red snapper can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, who will also tell the player some information about the donation.

In Animal Crossing

Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"Snaptacular! Snaptastic!, snap...That is...Oh bother! It wasn't particularly funny anyway. Please attempt to ignore my sorry lack of humor."

In Wild World

Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"Relatively few places serve red snapper, but... ...I actually understand why. It's rather dry, and not at all flavorful, eh wot?"

It can be found in the back, ocean tank in the aquarium.

In City Folk

Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"Hoo, magnificent! Fine job, snapping up a red snapper! ...Hoo now? You didn't find that uproariously funny? In any case, right near the gills of this fish is a bone that actually looks just like the fish itself... Some cultures believe keeping one of these on you brings good luck. Good luck is a snap! Hoo!"

It can be found in the tank at the back of the aquarium, with other ocean fish.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Red snappers are gregarious fish that often form schools close to reefs and shipwrecks. They are a prized food fish, but because of demand, other species are often served as "red snapper". They usually live up to 50 years. The oldest recorded red snapper was thought to be 57."

Further Information

In Real Life

LOOK its a Red Snapper OMG NOWAI

The red snapper, or Lutjanus campechanus, is a type of reef fish found in the Gulf of Mexico. It is a mostly Latin American species it was originally named Pargo. They can be caught up to 300 feet below the surface of the water, and prefer to swim near the bottom in reefs, ridges, and even offshore oil rigs and shipwrecks! It shares its looks with other snapper fish, with the sloped profile of its body (between the mouth to the top of its head). However, it lacks prominent upper canine teeth found in other snapper fish but has sharp, needle like teeth in their place. They are a commercial fish as well as a recreational fish, making it somewhat overfished. This is reflected in red snapper sales in the USA, which most are in fact different species of snapper fish, just mislabeled. It can live up to 50 years of age.
