The bigeye is usually a uniform bright red color, but it may occasionally be seen in a mottled color phase. It never has silver bars like the closely related glasseye snapper. The pelvic fins are large, about the length of the head, and are sometimes dusky toward the tips. Rear edges of dorsal fin and anal fin are rounded. The bigeye grows to a length of 1 foot (30 cm). The bigeye is found throughout the Caribbean, usually at depths greater than 50 feet (15 m) and often occurring in small schools.
