seem to prefer the more vertical structures such as the O Tower while the sea bass and grunts are often more numerous over hard bottom with a lot of variation in bottom contour.
The first published recordings of sounds from larval fish reveal that gray snappers
(Lutjanus griseus) only about a month old and a centimeter long make noises at night, says Claire Paris of the University of Miami in Florida.

The results take a toll on habitat that was once ideal for lobster, pink shrimp, red drum, and a number of other juvenile fish species, such as gray snapper
and great barracuda.
From gray snappers
and grunts on bottom, to king mackerel at the mid-depths, all kinds of good-eating fish lurk around Florida's shallow reefs.
(Lutjanus griseus) juveniles are often present in a variety of estuarine ecosystems with soft and hard bottom habitats and with a wide range of temperatures and salinities (Bortone and Williams (1)).
The four most commonly landed taxa (white grunt, spiny lobster, gray snapper
, and unidentified grunts) also ranked within the top ten released taxa.
The gray snapper
(Lutjanus griseus) is a temperate and tropical reef fish, commonly found in marine and estuarine waters in the western Atlantic Ocean from Florida through Brazil, including Bermuda, the Caribbean, and the northern Gulf (Randall, 1968; Rutherford et al.
The "0" Tower was a perfect choice because it's a deepwater structure (70 feet) that large gray snapper
prefer and the tower is located less than 20 miles from Carrabelle.
3), three assemblages had the strongest similarities among member species, labeled here as the deepwater assemblage (blueline tilefish, snowy grouper, speckled hind, and yellowedge grouper), southern assemblage (blue runner, gray snapper
, lane snapper, mutton snapper, and yellowtail snapper), and northern assemblage (bank sea bass, black sea bass, knobbed porgy, gag, gray triggerfish, greater amberjack, red porgy, red snapper, scamp, tomtate, vermilion snapper, white grunt, and whitebone porgy).

Abstract--The gray snapper
(Lutjanus griseus) is a temperate and tropical reef fish that is found along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts of the southeastern United States.
He added that in the past five years the red snapper fishing is excellent in the region as well as gray snapper
(locally referred to as black snapper).
Spawning peaks for gray snapper
off Key West, Florida, were also variable, occurring on the new and full moons of June-August, although the strongest spawning peak was associated with the last quarter moon of August, half way between the new and full moons (Domeier et al.
