Groupers are fish of any of a number of genera in the subfamily Epinephelinae of the family Serranidae, in the order Perciformes. Not all serranids are called groupers; the family also includes the sea basses. The common name grouper is usually given to fish in one of two large genera: Epinephelus and Mycteroperca. In addition, the species classified in the small genera Anyperidon, Cromileptes, Dermatolepis, Gracila, Saloptia, and Triso are also called groupers. Fish in the genus Plectropomus are referred to as coralgroupers.
The "Um El-Faroud" was built in England in 1969 and delivered to a company in Tripoli. Until February 1995 the tanker was carrying refined fuel between Italy and Libya. In February 1995 the vessel called in to Malta for repairs and in the night of February 3. an explosion occurred in tank no. 3, killing 9 yard workers. The structural damage was as much to leaf the ship beyond economical repairs.
