Grover the Goliath Grouper is one of the most popular fish in the ocean. Everyone knows who he is because of how big he can get, he can weigh up to 800 pounds! One of the coolest things he likes to show off are the rings around his dorsal fin. Just like a tree trunk, the rings can give you a pretty good idea of how old he is.
Fun fact!Grover is so big that he doesn’t have any natural enemies in the ocean, only humans who try to catch him on fishing boats.
Grover surprises many people with how friendly he is. Since he’s so big, many others are scared of him, but he’s really just a gentle giant. Grover is a scientist and loves to inspect and explore the underwater coral reefs. He only likes to study healthy ones though, so if you see him around, that means the nearby coral reef is nice and healthy!
