I think this is a schoolmaster snapper, Lutjanus apodus. Although it is also possible that it is a dog snapper, Lutjanus jocu. A look at the side of the fish would help to distinguish these two species.

Like what Lovesa66 said I believe it is the Dog Tooth Snapper, but i remember them have a spotted pattern on there side. With the angle this picture is on it is hard to tell for sure.

It sure does look like a snapper but there must be many different varieties. The one in your photo looks like a snapper from around New Zealand.

Definitely some kind of snapper, but maybe if you gave us the location where the photo was taken we could be more accurate.

The angle makes it very difficult to tell it's size but as everyone said it looks like a snapper of some description.

It is really hard to tell with the current picture. A side view would be much better. I believe it is a Dog Snapper.

Wow, I would go with snapper too but not sure with the angle of the photo.
