Oh my gosh!” Jorgensen exclaims, before cracking up with laughter as the monster fish disappears as suddenly as it had popped to the surface.
In 2018, Florida wildlife commissioners “refused to lift a nearly two-decade ban on harvesting the fish, citing continued uncertainty about the remaining numbers and bowing to the demands of divers and scientists, who packed a meeting and led an online petition that drew nearly 60,000 signatures,” the Herald reported.

Two friends lassoed the fish; it was hoisted from the water using a wrecker from Main Beach. The Container Corporation of America (or Rainier) scale was used to weight the fish.

State fish and wildlife police arrested a man they said killed a federally protected Goliath grouper while on vacation in the Florida Keys in August 2020. In this screenshot, the man is seen with a Goliath grouper, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Garrison told police he didn’t know the big fish he filleted was a Goliath grouper, a species that has been protected in state and federal waters off Florida since 1990. A young boy dives and grabs the nurse shark and brings it to a man on the deck, who shows it to some people.
“The shark is extremely sluggish and close to near death,” the FCC report states. After watching the nurse shark video, Dire checked out the rest of Garrison’s Keys posts and said he found evidence of the lobster and Goliath grouper violations.
She was part of the staff at the New Orleans Times-Picayune that in 2005 won two Pulitzer Prizes for coverage of Hurricane Katrina. A review of the iconic Atlantic goliathgrouper by a team of Florida State University scientists revealed considerable downsides to proposals to reopen the fishery that has been closed for nearly 30 years.
“Adult goliathgrouper carry heavy loads of mercury in their muscles at levels known to be toxic to humans and capable of producing irreversible brain damage in young people. With Malinowski, they examined multiple issues affecting goliathgrouper productivity to provide the best available scientific information to resource managers faced with making decisions about whether to reopen the fishery.
With the goliathgrouper facing extinction, federal and state officials intervened in 1990 and passed laws to protect the species by closing the fishery, which allowed a limited, slow population recovery in Florida waters. About 96 percent of goliathgrouper exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s risk level for human consumption of 0.3 micrograms per gram wet weight of total mercury.
The authors also suspect that high mercury levels are killing the older fish, limiting reproduction by harming the developing eggs and larvae, and making them more susceptible to disease.

I can still remember the high-pitched noise as line played out and deckhands came running to help Grams as he struggled to land a 321-pound goliathgrouper. The battle lasted nearly an hour, and for the retired bank messenger who had moved from Cleveland to Siesta Key, it was the catch of a lifetime.
The Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman posted video on Twitter from a fishing trip off the coast of Jupiter, Florida. When he finally reeled it in toward the boat, Taylor got a picture with his prize catch still in the water.
