Cabrilla Grouper (Leopard Grouper)

Product Description

Cabrilla grouper, also known as leopard grouper, is characterized by small reddish brown spots over a silver-gray background, resulting in its leopard-like appearance. A few (about 1 percent) of these groupers metamorphose into a golden phase, which are then referred to as golden grouper or golden cabrilla.

Cabrilla range in size from 2 to 10 pounds and can reach about three-feet in length. They are shallow water fishes and tend to cluster in large congregations over rocky reefs toward noon, placid and unperturbed until dusk. When night falls, they become true leopards of the reef, feeding voraciously on sardines, herrings and anchovies. As a result of their diet, cabrillas boast a high level of fat, a sweet and mildly rich flavor, and firm, moist texture. They are also sometimes referred to as cabrilla sardinera.
