Half Ton Goliath

Date Published:

A Goliath grouper estimated at 400 kilograms has been caught by fishermen in the Gulf of Ulloa near Las Barrancas on the Baja coast.

The fish was so large it filled the bed of a pickup truck that the fishermen used to bring it from the dock.

This individual is thought to be one of the largest Goliath groupers ever caught and is testament to the rich feeding grounds in the Gulf of California.

The Pacific goliath grouper is found primarily in shallow tropical waters among coral and artificial reefs at depths of up to 165 feet (50 m). Their range includes the area from the Gulf of California to Peru. They feed on crustaceans, other fish, octopuses and young sea turtles and juveniles are preyed upon by large fish such as barracuda, moray eels and large sharks.

Goliath groupers are believed to be protogynous hermaphrodites, with individuals first maturing as females and only some large adults becoming males. Most grouper follow this pattern, but it has not yet been verified for the goliath.

The Goliath grouper has been listed as one of the top 10 most endangered fish species.
