The black grouper varies from a reddish-brown to black with distinctive rectangular body markings. There is a pale yellow margin on its pectoral fins and a wide black margin on its tail fin. Its size ranges from 1-1/2 to 4 feet in length. Like all groupers, black groupers have large mouths so they can swallow fish and crustaceans whole. They are usually found near the bottom of coral reefs or occasionally in open water above reefs or near walls from depths of 20 to 100 feet.

Distribution, Stock Structure and Migration
Western Atlantic: Bermuda and Massachusetts, USA to southern Brazil, including the southern Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Adults are unknown from the northeastern coast of the USA.

A solitary species inhabiting rocky and coral reefs.

Adults feed primarily on fishes; juveniles mainly on crustaceans.

Quick Fact
The black grouper can darken or lighten its coloration to the point where there appears to be no markings at all on its body.
