Goliath groupers are the largest of the groupers in the Atlantic basin. They were once so overfished in the Southeastern United States, they were considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Thankfully, a dedicated group of marine scientists worked to prompt NOAA to ban all of their harvest. This action in the early 1990s gave the grouper time to recover and gave scientists time to learn more about this fish.
