Goliath grouper are a mostly quiet, mostly gentle behemoth that can be found in rocky shores and in shipwrecks. Once a prized game fish, it is now legal only to catch and release the giants. Divers often find them fascinating and will approach the languid fish as they guard their territories. This usually results only in a few nice pictures and an interesting story, but the fish – which can be four times larger than a human – should be treated with respect and caution.
