Information about the Peacock Grouper:
The Peacock Grouper - also called the Roi, Blue-spotted Grouper, Argus Grouper, Peacock Hind, Peacock Grouper or Peacock Rockcod is a fish from the Indo-Pacific. Its species name comes from its resemblance to the "hundred staring eyes" of the monster Argus in Greek mythology. A medium sized fish that can reach a length of 24 inches (60 centimeters) When the fish is hunting, they will lay on the bottom and surge forward, preferring smaller fish and crustaceans. They may also hover motionless in the water column before attacking. This grouper may follow and cooperate with another predator species, such as an octopus or eel or camouflage themselves in a school of surgeonfish. Multiple individuals may cooperate to harass an eel to get it to flush prey for them. These fish were introduced to Hawaii in the 1950s to enhance local fisheries. Hawaii's Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) finds that they have become the reefs' dominant predator.
