Goliath Grouper Enrages Diver Hilarious Video
Check out this video of a diver having his mangrove snappers gobbled up by a swarm of hungry goliath grouper.
His anger is apparent through his bubbles and I bet that tank didn’t last long.
Goliath grouper are a shallow water grouper that can grow to epic proportions. They can reach a weight of 800-pounds and frequent shallow wrecks and structures. They were harvested heavily in the 1970’s and 80’s, but they have been protected from harvest since 1990. In that time they have rebounded and are found in great numbers on any shallow-water structures like the wrecks in the video. They can be incredibly frustrating when they eat everything you hook or spear. Many have called for a limited harvest of some sort but I would not hold my breath.
