Diving Nassau, Bahamas: Grouper

I like groupers for three reasons.

1. They're pretty scary-looking.

2. They're easy to photograph. Groupers are relatively territorial and sedentary, and a fish that stays in one place is a fish that's more likely to star in a "keeper" photo. The infamous fleeing "fish butt" photo is no fun at all.

 

 

3. They taste good. (Although I just learned that, like virtually all good-tasting fish, they are overfished and should be avoided. Damn.) These grouper fingers at Señor Frog's may well have been my last!

But I will never give up spiral-potatoes-on-a-stick.

    Beautiful pictures! Personally, I’ve never seen a grouper this close, so I’m a little jealous. Thanks for sharing.
