Snappers are found in all oceans of tropical and subtropical regions. Snappers are sought after mainly for their delicious table fare and especially the red snapper. Snappers are commonly caught dropping down dead or live bait and normally range in the 1 to 2 feet length. The Cubera snapper is the largest of all snappers and has been recorded up to 63" in length. The American Red Snapper is a common topic of discussion due to the poor management by officials claiming that their stocks are depleted when all anglers are aware that they are so abundant it's not even funny and at times hard to catch other fish due to the amount of Red Snappers on each wreck or reef.
Snapper full mounts are made of fiberglass for a lifetime of enjoyment and are hand crafted to represent the fish you caught or to showcase the fishes alive and lit up look as if it was swimming in the ocean. Everything you see while the Snapper full mount is hanging on the wall is painted. The backside of the mount that is touching the wall or not viewable is actually painted black. These mounts are not intended to be hung from the ceiling.
Snapper half mounts are anatomically correct half fish replicas that are intended to be displayed on the wall. A half-sided mount is produced by casting the front part of our two-sided wall mount molds. When displayed the circumference of the half mount is either touching the wall or very close to the wall. This process cuts labor and supplies cost and therefore results in a lower price point however the skin texture and finishing process is the same as a traditional full mount.
Our Snapper 3D mounts are the ultimate fish replica option. Not only are they anatomically correct but they are also completely finished on all surface areas. Our Snapper 3D fish mounts are intended to be suspended from the ceiling and are completely finished on all sides for 360 degree viewing. 3D fish mount replicas are suspended by attaching either a heavy monofilament, string or light gauge wire to small holes in the top dorsal fin and top portion of the tail and when necessary we will include a eyehole screw in the head portion of the replica. This allows for easy and quick installation. Pedestal mounting is an available option, this add on is necessary when using our products for addition to signs, displays or other interior or outdoor use. Pricing for the pedestal option is based on a per project basis.
Most full mounts can also be made into 3D mounts. If you do not see the 3D product listing for the size you are interested in, please reach out to us.
