TR2254-D. Nassau Grouper (Epinephelus striatus) opening mouth wide, allowing you to see its gill arches and even its throat. This species can change color and pattern quickly, is usually found on shallow coral reefs to 100 feet deep, and is sometimes curious toward divers and easily approachable. Populations in much of their range (Bahamas, Florida, and Caribbean) have been greatly reduced by overfishing on their spawning grounds. Cayman Islands, Caribbean Sea.<br />
