The Stripey is one of our small species of schooling snapper that can be found throughout the islands around reefs, slopes, and bays. They often school is large numbers up to 20 or 30 individuals.  Their golden colored lateral lines distinguish them from other species of snapper which have similar size and body shape.  These are not one of the most common species to be caught on rod and reel though occasionally they can be.  Have you caught a stripey here in the Philippines?  If so please send us your photos.
