Hind? Grouper? Help!

Recommended Posts

These were taken in Bonaire. Not sure if the one in a sponge is a red hind or grouper.post-6631-1184102834_thumb.jpgpost-6631-1184102851_thumb.jpg

 

Thanks for the help!

Thanks. I like it a lot too. Maybe I should have entered it in the "purple" category for POTW???

 

So the consensus is that they are both a red hind? I was pretty sure about the one in the sponge but was unsure about the other.

Both images are of Graysby (Cephalopholis cruentatus)

 

Also, grouper and hind (and in other parts of the world: cod, trout, and groper) are synonyms for the same family of fish. There is no difference. You can use which ever one tickles your tongue, though grouper is probably the most widely recognized/used.

I live by the motto you can't win if you don't enter.
