This fish looks like a Red Bass Lutjanus Bohar and not a Mangrove Jack Lutjanus argentimaculatus that so many of us incorrectly call Red Snapper.

Red Bass are a heavy carrier of Ciguatera toxins (expecially large ones like this) and should not be consumed.

"Akin", well sort of they are both 'Lutjanus". However, true Red Snapper like cooler water, not so much a tropical fish, they are found in temperate zones not tropical.
