Fox, A. R., Campbell, A. B., Sumpter, L. and Hillcoat, K.B. (2021) Stock assessment of Queensland east coast crimson snapper (Lutjanus erythropterus), Australia. Technical Report. State of Queensland, Brisbane.



Crimson snapper (Lutjanus erythropterus) is a species of tropical snapper that inhabits Queensland waters, forming one population (stock) on Queensland’s east coast. This stock is primarily harvested by line fishing. Crimson snapper are gonochoristic (born male or female and do not change sex) and spawn primarily during spring and summer. They can grow to 79 cm (fork length) and live for at least 35 years (DAF, unpublished data).
This is the first stock assessment of the Queensland east coast stock of crimson snapper. It implemented a one-sex population model fit to age and length data, constructed within the Stock Synthesis modelling framework.
