Grouper Malabar grouper, Epimetheus malarious Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Actinopterygii Order: Performed Family: Serranidae Subfamily: EpinephelinaeBleeker, 1874 Tribes and genera Not all errands are called 'groupers'; the family also includes the sea basses. The common name grouper is usually given to fish in one of two large genera : Epimetheus and Mycteroperca.

In addition, the species classified in the small genera Hyperion, Completes, Dermatologist, Graciela, Scotia, and Trio are also called 'groupers'. However, some hamlets (genus Affected), the hinds (genus Cephalopods), the lyre tails (genus Various) and some other small genera (Gonioplectrus, Nippon, Paranoia) are also in this subfamily, and occasional species in other serrated genera have common names involving the word grouper “.

Nonetheless, the word grouper on its own is usually taken as meaning the subfamily Epinephrine. Groupers are Telecasts, typically having a stout body and a large mouth.

They can be quite large, and lengths over a meter and the largest is the Atlantic Goliath grouper (Epimetheus Tamara) which has been weighed at 399 kilograms (880 pounds) and a length of 2.43 m (7 ft 11 1 2 in), though in such a large group, species vary considerably. They do not have many teeth on the edges of their jaws, but they have heavy crushing tooth plates inside the pharynx.

They habitually eat fish, octopuses, and crustaceans. Reports of fatal attacks on humans by the largest species, such as the giant grouper (Epimetheus lanceolatus) are unconfirmed.

They also use their mouths to dig into sand to form their shelters under big rocks, jetting it out through their gills. The word grouper is from the Portuguese name, group, which has been speculated to come from an indigenous South American language.

In New Zealand, “groper” refers to a type of wreck fish, Poly prion oxygenate, which goes by the Mori name haiku. In the Middle East, the fish is known as hammer ', and is widely eaten, especially in the Persian Gulf region.

The species in the tribes Grammistini and Diploprionini secrete a mucus like toxin in their skin called Rammstein and when they are confined in a restricted space and subjected to stress the mucus produces a foam which is toxic to nearby fish, these fishes are often called soap fishes. Jordan, 1923 Tribe Epinephrine Sleeker, 1874 Aethaloperca Fowler, 1904 Affected Bloch & Schneider, 1801 Anyperodon Gunther, 1859 Cephalopods Bloch & Schneider, 1801 Chromites Swanson, 1839 Dermatologist Gill, 1861 Epimetheus Bloch, 1793 Gonioplectrus Gill, 1862 Graciela Randall, 1964 Hyporthodus Gill, 1861 Mycteroperca Gill, 1862 Paranoia Guillemot, 1868 Plectropomus Pen, 1817 Scotia J.L.B.

Smith, 1964 Trio Randall, Johnson & Lowe, 1989 Various Swanson, 1839 Groupers are mostly monastic protogynous hermaphrodites, i.e. they mature only as females and have the ability to change sex after sexual maturity.

The largest males often control harems containing three to 15 females. As such, if a small female grouper were to change sex before it could control a harem as a male, its fitness would decrease.

If no male is available, the largest female that can increase fitness by changing sex will do so. Gonochorism, or a reproductive strategy with two distinct sexes, has evolved independently in groupers at least five times.

The evolution of gonochorism is linked to group spawning high amounts of habitat cover. Both group spawning and habitat cover increase the likelihood of a smaller male to reproduce in the presence of large males.

Fitness of male groupers in environments where competitive exclusion of smaller males is not possible is correlated with sperm production and thus testicle size. Gonochoristic groupers have larger testes than protogynous groupers (10% of body mass compared to 1% of body mass), indicating the evolution of gonochorism increased male grouper fitness in environments where large males were unable to competitively exclude small males from reproducing.

Many groupers are important food fish, and some of them are now farmed. Unlike most other fish species which are chilled or frozen, groupers are usually sold live in markets.

Groupers are commonly reported as a source of Ciguatera fish poisoning. DNA barcoding of grouper species might help in controlling Ciguatera fish poisoning since fish are easily identified, even from meal remnants, with molecular tools.

In September 2010, a Costa Rican newspaper reported a 2.3 m (7 ft 7 in) grouper in Cieneguita, Limón. The weight of the fish was 250 kg (550 lb) and it was lured using one kilogram of bait.

Wiki source has the text of the 1905 New International Encyclopedia article Grouper “. Flavor/Texture : These oily fish have a reputation for tasting “fishy,” but high-quality anchovies have a meaty texture and a super umami-forward flavor.

Flavor/Texture : This mild fish has a slightly sweet flavor and a medium-firm texture that eats juicy when cooked properly. Some people soak catfish in milk or salt water to remove its somewhat muddy flavor.

Substitutes : The best alternative for this one is black cod (also called sable fish), which is often touted as a more sustainable option. Flavor/Texture : Although cod has a delicate, flaky texture, it’s also resiliently meaty and can hold up to just about any cooking method.

It’s prized for its meaty, sweet flavor and boasts an impressively firm texture with big flakes. Substitutes : Any fish with meaty texture works well here, like swordfish, marlin or shark.

Can be used to describe many kinds of saltwater fish, including striped bass, rock cod, redfish and ocean perch. Flavor/Texture : A mild fish with a slightly nutty flavor, a medium texture and a fine flake.

Substitutes : Swap in one of the many fish synonymous with rock fish, or look for red snapper, porgy or cod. Most people marinate shark meat to remove the naturally occurring ammonia flavor.

Flavor/Texture : Although it’s a lean fish, properly cooked snapper is moist with a mild, sweet flavor and a delicate but firm texture. Substitutes : Any whitefish with a delicate flavor will work here, like tile fish, flounder or grouper.

When cooked, this fish flakes easily but sushi-grade tuna can be consumed raw and has a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth quality. Substitutes : Choose a whitefish with a flaky texture, like haddock, rock fish or snapper.

Taste of Home There's nothing like fresh salmon, and my mom bakes it just right so it nearly melts in your mouth. The sour cream dill sauce is subtly seasoned with horseradish so that it doesn't overpower the delicate salmon flavor.

Went offshore last week to try to catch a limit of grouper before the season goes out and went up to 40 miles out hitting nearly 20 ledges on our GPS. Ended the day with zero grouper and threw back God only knows how many BSB.

My theory/concern- Is it possible that grouper are being naturally pressured by the spike in BSB population? I want my children to be able to catch a grouper some day and I'm as concerned as anyone about our environment, but it seems to me that there are more “protected” sharks and “endangered” BSB on the reefs every year I go back.

The balance of our ecosystem is way the hell off because of these new radical rules & I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel! Skiff, your theory is right. With little to NO harvest all year they took over most all ledges. It would have been better to kill&release all year but it's too late now. There won't be anyone fishing with BG closed next 4 mos. Sure hope they {bass} don't eat EVERYTHING out there! When will bass migrate back north ? Anyone knows? You're welcome N/Hatteras Virginia. You should be made up.

Check out some Gulf of Mexico fishing sites, and they are having the same problem but with American red snapper, they are eating the other species out of house and home, literally. I believe that the BSB population will at the very least change the migratory habits of our grouper, and other game fish.

More than likely they will go farther offshore and become harder to reach for most anglers, they will also be more dispersed. I would also check into who is buying up available Federal commercial fishing licenses, I bet you can trace them to Roy, Jane, and Co. Steve_________________93 27ft.

Don't worry though, they will get pushed offshore shortly as the hordes of endangered dog fish begin to arrive to spawn. I asked one of the world's the smartest scientists at NFS one time why there were so many dogfish yet the fishery was still suppressed.

The majority of my offshore trips, I noticed one common theme.we would fight through the beautiful, healthy, and 'overfished' BSB's, then sharks.and if we waited it out, we would get a Grouper bight towards the tail end of our set...it took some time, but we would get them. Also, we stayed away from the usual cut baits to keep the sharks somewhat at bay.but if they became too thick, we would pull up and drink a couple beers to allow them to disperse.

I don't know, can someone shed more light on this situation. I asked the SFMC this very question at their propaganda show in Raleigh. Specifically, I asked regarding rec angler intercepts and phone surveys.

I am sure this is not popular here but Dogfish is a good eating fish IMO. It has the texture of chicken (little tougher meat than most fish) but very mild flavor.

BSB are like the small crappie on a brush pile they're going get the bait before big guns do, now with grouper being targeted more and the vast numbers of BSB the only way you're going to connect on grouper is bigger baits like large pinkish or jigs or big cigar minnows and good luck As Rodeo stated, the grouper will usually show up after you get a feeding frenzy started.

The key is to use big live baits, anchor and release about 50 BSB. At some point the grouper will come to check out the action and push the BSB out of the way.

I have not caught hardly any grouper on jigs inside 140' since the BSB have multiplied. I have some friends who dive and the gag grouper populations are very healthy.

If you overpopulate a single species then biodiversity goes to hell and you get a multitude of unintended consequences. When the striped bass moratorium went into effect, there were weakfish (gray trout), craters, spot, tons of herring, and eels in great abundance in the bay and the tributaries.

Spots are “imported” from the Chesapeake, and purchased by people live for $2.50 a piece (retail) for stripper bait (really, I'm not making this up). We, as sportsmen saw this coming as (when it was legal) the best large stripper bait was a 14" weakfish.

Related Topics A grouper is any of a number of fish in the serranidae family and also includes sea bass. Some can grow to be as much as three and a half feet (about one meter) long and more than 200 pounds (a little under 100 kilograms) in weight.

Grouper usually swallow their prey, which include octopus, crab, fish, and lobster, whole. The fish also uses its large mouth to dig into the sand where it lies in wait for its prey.

Groupers are not fast, nimble swimmers, and they rely on sneak attacks to capture food. Cooks and fishermen might also encounter the colorfully named comet, saddle tail, or tiger grouper.

October is National Seafood Month, and fish can be an excellent and sustainable choice for a healthy protein source that is low in fat and high in the good omega-3 fatty acids. The bad news is that seafood can also be a lousy choice that is unsustainable, environmentally destructive, less healthy than you think, and a rip off so big it is literally criminal.

We live in an era of seafood fraud so rampant that in 2014 President Obama had to create a Presidential Task Force explicitly to combat it, along with illegal “pirate” fishing, unregistered boats that ignore international quotas meant to protect the environment and poach in prohibited or protected waters. Numerous studies have shown that a substantial amount of the seafood in this country is illegally mislabeled and more than 90% is imported, often with murky or unknown origins.

Counterfeiters target products with high perceived value, which means the best known and most desirable fish, and in this country, more than half of our total seafood consumption is just three categories: shrimp, salmon and canned tuna. Right now Blue fin tuna, wildly popular with sushi aficionados, is critically threatened and according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, stocks are at just 3% of historic highs.

Among those I consulted were Rick Mooney, one of the world’s most acclaimed seafood chefs, who got 3-stars from the New York Times, wrote the highly regarded cookbook, Fish Without A Doubt, and runs his flagship RM Seafood in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay casino resort; Kerry Jefferson, of Grand Banks and Eleven Madison Park fame, who just opened the sustainably focused Seaworthy in New Orleans; and Todd Singeing of New York’s two Crave Fish bar locations, who serves on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Blue Ribbon Sustainability Task Force. This is by no means a complete list, as there are about 500 commercially available species of seafood in this country, and other underutilized fish are being embraced by chefs all the time, but these are five solid alternatives.

The trick is that while all Blue fin tuna is off the table, Albacore runs the gamut from begun highly sustainable to red on the Seafood Watch list depending on where and how it is caught. Realizing the threat to its long-term supply chain and bent on worldwide product consistency, McDonald's looked at many options before switching to Pollock, a sea change that has been quietly heralded by environmentalists.

Porgy Instead of Striped Bass : Acclaimed New York (and now New Orleans) chef Kerry Jefferson spends a lot of time on the waters of the Northeast himself as an avid angler, and in recent years has grown so concerned about the diminishing wild northeastern striped bass that he started the Save Our Stripes campaign and got about 150 prominent New York chefs to pledge to refuse to serve the fish. One of the Save our Stripes participants, chef Todd Singeing of Crave Fish bar, told me has had a lot of success serving porgy as a raw crude or ceviche of sorts, very popular with his customers.

From the traditional southern fried method to more complex recipes. Red and Black Grouper Fish The grouper fish has a mild but unique flavor, somewhat of a cross between bass and halibut.

Grouper meat cooks up very firm, with big flakes and holds its moisture better than many other fish. Red Snapper Fish A raw red snapper fillet will be pinkish with some yellow tones in the meat.

The main method of catching these prized fish is by rollers. Chums are graded two different ways, the first is called Silver brights which have a reddish-pink meat and a shiny silver skin.

Although the lean meat of the tilapia will be slightly firmer than that of the catfish. The FDA allowed the change of the name, to improve the marketing of the orange roughly fish.

Cod Fish is sometimes referred to as the Chicken of the Sea, because of its white flaky meat and mild taste. Facts About Lobsters The American lobster (Homers Americans) is found in waters of the North Atlantic from Labrador to North Carolina.

They are caught in waters ranging in depth from 15 to 1000 feet, in wire mesh traps. Monkish have huge heads, tiny eyes and needle like teeth.

When these tuna feed at night the bright yellow dorsal fin and the yellow strip they have down its side, resembles flashes of fire. The yellow fin can be found in the tropical warm waters of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

Being a member of the cod family, this fish is mild in flavor with a slightly coarse texture. Blue Crab Facts Prized for its sweet, rich and buttery flavored meat, the blue crabs scientific name is Callinectes rapids meaning (Calli-beautiful, nectes-swimmer and rapids- savory).

Flounder Fish is just one of about 540 species of flatfish that belong to the taxonomic order Pleuronectiade, which means “side swimmer”. Chances are you are not, this family of fish (Se bastes genus) has 70 plus species in it.

In Freshwater in North America it normally refers to one of a half a dozen or so of species of fish: Sea Bass refers to MANY species of Saltwater fish.
