A Goliath Grouper digests a lobster off the coast Cuba. As the light wanes at the end of the day, lobsters start to come out from under their coral or rock shelters and these massive fish that can grow up to 8 feet long and 700 pounds are there to feast on them. I had no idea that these ancient and massive fish had such an appetite for these large and abundant crustaceans. Until a harvest ban was placed on Groupers, its population was in rapid decline. They are now protected and are listed as a critically endangered species by the IUCN.[1] The US began protection in 1990 with the Caribbean following soon after. The species' population has been recovering since the ban and there is talk of lifting this ban in Florida waters. What do you think?
