Yellowfin groupers have rectangular blotches that cover their bodies. The edges of their pectoral fins are bright yellow and their tail fin has a dark edge. Like all groupers, yellowfin groupers have large mouths so they can swallow fish and crustaceans whole. They usually grow between 1 and 2 feet in length and are found on coral reefs and walls at depths between 15 and 120 feet.
