Is Sea Bass And Grouper The Same Thing

I wanted to get some feedback on a theory that I hope is completely false, but frankly, I'm concerned. 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.

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.

Open up a BSB, and they are stuffed full of juvenile vermilion snapper Freaking things are a nuisance Don't worry though, they will get pushed offshore shortly as the hordes of endangered dog fish begin to arrive to spawn.

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. Since FL has such a high rec angler population and relatively low BSB population since it is the extreme southernmost end of their range, my theory is that the data coming in is heavily weighted towards the parts of the BSB range where they are not naturally present.

It has the texture of chicken (little tougher meat than most fish) but very mild flavor. Squid Row wrote:Steve wrote:Oh by the way does anyone know how to make one Atlantic Sharp nose Shark taste good? Gut them immediately (while still alive) and ice them down.

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. I support the RFA and send letters,, however it feels a lot like p**ING in the wind.

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.

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.
