Nassau Grouper


Jake and I found this tiny two inch juvenile Nassau Grouper Epinephelus striatus hiding in a small coral mound. Jake netted the grouper yesterday and put it in his aquarium. It has already claimed a small cave and is defending his area. While photographing him I watched it eat at least 3 Mysid shrimp. Unfortunately I was never able to time it right and always took a picture just after he swallowed. We saw this grouper while diving in front of The Cove.
