blue spotted grouper

Cephalopholis cyanostigma

When you see these fish they look as though they are doing nothing but they are probably stalking prey. It is much harder to a catch a fish than you might think, most fish live in schools and have many eyes looking for predators, they can talk to each other to warn each other, they stay close to coral so they can hide in it, some have toxic skin and most are born knowing the smell of predators, so even if they can’t see it (even if they have never seen a predator) they know when one is around.

On average, a blue spotted grouper will only catch one fish every two days.
