Caption: Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus) in a coral garden. This grouper inhabits the tropical western Atlantic Ocean from Florida, USA, to southern Brazil. It is found on reefs and walls down to a depth of around 90 metres. For most of its life it is solitary, but when it spawns tens of thousands of individuals school together. It is a predator, feeding on fish, crustaceans and squid. It is valued as a food fish, and is heavily fished in the region. An adult can reach over 120 centimetres in length. Photographed off New Providence Island in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean Sea.
