Red Emperor (Lutjanus sebae) Photographs and Information



Red emperors live in a variety of habitats including coral reef lagoons, reefs, sand flats and gravel patches.  They are found from shallow (5m) water to at least 180m.  Small juveniles frequently form commensal associations with sea-urchins.   Juveniles less than 20cm long are common in nearshore turbid waters, in mangrove areas or among both coast and deeper water offshore reefs.  Red emperors move to deeper water as they grow larger, with large fish often moving into shallower water during the winter months.  Red emperors form schools of similar-sized individual or are solitary

Red Emperors on the Great Barrier Reef are estimated to be 20-21 cm fork length at 1 year of age and 40cm at 3 years of age.  Red emperors reach a maximum total length of at least 100 cm, possibly 116cm fork length and live to at least 10 years of age.

Red emperor is a type of seaperch. Despite its entrenched name, it is not an emperor (Lethrinus spp). Crimson seaperch (Lutjanus erythropterus) or saddletail seaperch (Lutjanus malabaricus) are sometimes incorrectly sold as red emperor

Angling for Red Emperor:

Red Emperors are caught by recreational anglers using handlines and sometimes rod-and-line.  The most common baits are cut fish flesh, pilchards and squid.  

 


Cooking Red Emperor:

  • The red emperor is a superb finfish to eat and its white, juicy flesh is delicious served either hot or cold. It is a stunning finfish for display, both for its bright red head and skin and its impressive size. It can be cooked whole (gilled and gutted) by baking, steaming, or deep frying, but is also ideal in fillet form for grilling, barbecuing, steaming and frying. If deep frying or grilling whole larger varieties, score the flesh first.

More than 125 fish species are caught in the reef line fishery, but only a few of them are targeted. Buyers and sellers of Red Emperor are listed.
