Australian Seafood Handbook. Summary: A very popular sports fish with a greenish-brown to reddish body, and a silvery-white belly. Individuals in deeper waters are reddish overall. Juveniles have a series of about 8 whitish bars on the sides, and blue lines across the cheek. The Mangrove Jack has a slightly concave caudal fin and the scale rows on the back are roughly parallel to the lateral line.

Elsewhere, the species is widespread in the tropical Indo-west-central Pacific, and has been recorded from the coast of Lebanon in the Mediterranean Sea having reached there via the Suez Canal. Adults usually inhabit coral reefs, often sheltering in caves or under ledges during the day. Juveniles and young adults occur amongst mangroves and in tidal creeks, and are sometimes found in the lower reaches of fresh-water streams.
As they grow, they migrate offshore to deeper reef areas. Body moderately deep, depth 2. Snout somewhat pointed; preorbital bone relatively broad, wider than eye diameter; preopercular notch and knob poorly developed; jaws with well developed canine teeth; vomerine tooth patch crescentic, without a medial posterior extension; tongue with patch of granular teeth.
Scale rows on back more or less parallel to lateral line, or parallel below spinous part of dorsal fin and sometimes rising obliquely posteriorly, or rarely with entirely oblique rows. Dorsal fin continuous; posterior profile of dorsal and anal fins rounded. Caudal fin emarginate to nearly truncate. Size To cm SL, commonly to 80 cm.
Colour Back and sides greenish-brown to reddish, belly silvery or whitish; those from deep water overall reddish. Juveniles with series of about 8 whitish bars crossing sides, and blue lines across cheek. Feeding Carnivores - active predators feeding mainly at night on fishes, crustaceans, gastropods and cephalopod molluscs.
Biology Oviparous pelagic spawners. Spawning occurs on deeper offshore reefs during the summer months. Juveniles around 2cm in length settle out from the plankton into coastal estuaries during late summer. They spend several years in estuaries, ranging upstream into brackish mangrove creeks and the lower reaches of freshwater streams.
Tagging studies indicate that Mangrove Jacks migrate to offshore reefs at cm in length. Fisheries A popular and important commercial and recreational fish throughout its range, and considered to be an excellent food fish. Taken mostly with handlines, bottom longlines, and in bottom trawls. These teeth can cause a nasty injury to unwary fishers. Similar Species Similar to the Red Bass, Lutjanus bohar , which is usually darker in coloration and has fewer dorsal-fin spines, scale rows on the back that rise obliquely from the lateral line, and a deep groove from the nostrils to the eyes.
