Grouper fish are one of the most highly sought-after deep seawater fish. You can mostly find them in warmer waters, and they vary in appearance from green or brown colors. The term grouper refers to a family of fish rather than a single species - the family of fish also includes sea bass!
Groupers have strong bodies and largemouths but aren't built for long-distance or fast swimming - great knowledge for Miami fishing anglers! They tend to be quite large, reaching weights of nearly 220 pounds. Compared to many Miami deep sea fishing fish, they do not have a lot of teeth, rather tooth plates in the back of the mouth, located inside the pharynx. Even bigger groupers are not known to attack humans.
The largest grouper ever recorded was found in the West Atlantic ocean and measured 8.2 feet and weighing 800 pounds. In Florida, the highest recorded weight on a hook and line catch was 680 pounds.
