The Pacific goliath grouper (Epinephelus quinquefasciatus) is a large saltwater fish of the grouper family. It is related to the Atlantic goliath grouper. The Pacific goliath grouper is found primarily in shallow tropical waters among coral and artificial reefs at depths of up to 165 feet (50 meters). Their range includes the East Pacific from the Gulf of California to Peru. Young groupers may live in brackish estuaries, and canals. They may reach extremely large sizes, growing to lengths of 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) and can weigh as much as 800 pounds (363 kg).
