The Nassau Grouper - an iconic species and lover of sombreros. These endangered and friendly fellows are found from Bermuda and Florida throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean Sea. In 1997 Mexico's fishery authority banned fishing Nassau grouper during their spawning aggregations (December to February). This is because Nassau Grouper spawn in HUGE numbers. In fact, >7000 have been known to come together for a little grouper loving, and over the last 2 years on the Cayman islands (home to the world's largest aggregations), these romantic fish have spawned on valentines day! #Cute Unfortunately, for reasons still unknown to science, Nassau Grouper don't spawn below a certain threshold number, meaning they're severely threatened by overfishing. There's also rumours that other groupers are jealous of them, and want to build a wall to keep them away from their coral reefs and rocky substrates.
