The name “grouper” is used to refer to a series of fish that fall under the species of Epinephelina, a subfamily that also includes the famous sea bass. The name “grouper” is believed to be Portuguese in its origin. Like other fish, the grouper goes by different names around the world. Over in Australia, the fish is referred to as “groper” while the people of the Philippines call it “lapu-lapu” or “pugapo”. In the Middle East, it is known as “hammour”.
Unlike some of the other fish we’ve discussed, the grouper is not known for being a fast swimmer. Instead, they are recognized for their large mouths and bodies that can weigh well over 200 pounds. As opposed to fish that bite off pieces of their prey, the grouper prefers to consume its prey by swallowing it. Grouper prey includes octopuses, fish, and crustaceans. Depending on the species, some of them will ambush prey using their camouflage ability while others lead an active predator lifestyle.THERAPY-IV, a Miami deep sea fishing boat service, brought this update to you.
