20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Goliath Grouper with Sue

Goliath Groupers congregate in Jupiter, Florida every fall and attract many divers to the area to appreciate their majestic presence. They are a protected species but in danger of people being allowed to take them for fishing trophies even though at this size they are not edible. They need our protection.
