Every year, the region's goliath grouper get together to spawn. Luckily for us here in Palm Beach County, this has become among their favorite destinations! Several local shipwrecks host dozens of these sofa-sized fish in late summer and fall, and they have become a favorite among divers. In this program, the biology and conservation of the goliath grouper will be discussed, with a focus on the importance of our local reefs for the continued recovery of this long-endangered species. Host: Narcosis Dive Charters, Riviera Beach
