Caption: Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus) on the seabed. This fish can reach a length of over a metre. It is a predator, feeding mainly on other fish and crustaceans. Young fish are typically found on shallow reefs, but mature adults occupy deeper waters, down to around 90 metres. Although solitary for much of its life, at the New Moon it forms huge spawning shoals, which can contain tens of thousands of individuals. It is a fine food fish. Photographed off San Salvador Island in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean Sea.
