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.
