gamut of sizes and shapes, from the diminutive graysby weighing several pounds to the
mammoth goliath grouper that can top the scales at 600 pounds or more.
This publication discusses nine grouper species that are found in Florida, and includes
information on appearance and size. Also discussed is grouper life history and economic
and management considerations.
