Comb grouper

The Comb grouper lives in the demersal, marine, depth range - 200 m , usually 20 - 30 m environment.

The Comb grouper is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

Comb grouper is important for small-scale artisanal fisheries as well as amateur fishing. It is common throughout its Brazilian range, but is regarded as a target of a “heavy” fishing pressure by Floeter et al. (2006). More
