I’ve been around the block a few times, and dove on quite a few reefs over the years. On most reefs in the Caribbean — make that the West Atlantic generally — you’d be hard pressed to see a fish big enough to feed 2 or 3 people. But our last week spent in the “gardens of the Queen” (Jardines de la Reina) on the south coast of Cuba was another story entirely. Big fish everywhere. Here is a video I shot while snorkeling of one of the largest fishes in the west Atlantic, the Goliath Grouper. The species reaches up to 800 pounds, and I’d guess this baby was well over 100 pounds.
Stay tuned for more from our trip!
