Yet another member of the Seabass family, the Nassau Grouper can be as large as 8 feet long. Found at depths from 10 - 100 feet, the Nassau Grouper usually completely unafraid of divers to the extent that one can actually approach one and scratch its "chin". Once contact has been made with one, it may follow the diver around for the duration of his underwater stay. This is a very common fish in Cayman waters and delicious to eat!
