These are the average size of Snapper (Chrysophrys auratus) that can usually be found at Goat Island Marine Reserve. Snorkelers with Experiencing Marine Reserves are often surrounded by Snapper who probably think the snorkelers are a group of feeding animals they can scavenge some scraps from. Rapping your knuckles on something solid is a good way to attract them quickly.
