A large, big-mouthed fish, found around coral reefs.

Giant groupers are a species of fish who can be found in tropical oceans. Ten times heavier than a dwarf, they provide a great amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, giant groupers can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant giant groupers are called grouper fry.

Note that, despite the name, giant groupers aren't savage versions of a normal grouper. They're an actual animal with "giant" in its name.

Some dwarves like giant groupers for their lips.

Admired for its lips.
