Dusky Grouper, Yellowbelly Grouper

Groupers are large fish usually found between 15 and 100 meters deep. Like all members of the Epinephelinae subfamily, this dusky grouper is a protoginic hermaphrodite fish, that is, they initially live as females later developing into males. Due to their impressive size, their fearless behavior towards humans and the habit of aggregating for reproduction, they assume a high commercial and sporting value.
