Details About Grouper
Several species of grouper are severely depleted.
One reason for their dwindling numbers is their highly unusual mating ritual: mature fish come together to spawn in huge numbers that make easy targets for fishing vessels. This removes many reproducing fish and threatens the recovery of depleted populations.
Commercial and recreational fishing of nassau grouper and goliath grouper (jewfish) are now prohibited in U.S. waters.
This is an Eco-Worst choice. If you decide to eat it, we recommend the following due to elevated mercury levels:
Women should eat no more than 3 meals per month
Men should eat no more than 2 meals per month
Kids age 6-12 should eat no more than 2 meals per month
Kids up to age 6 should eat no more than 1 meal per month
