Grouper Luna is a blog about research and conservation of  reef fish spawning aggregations, mainly those from large-bodied grouper fish, and conservation issues related to marine life. The blog was founded by Dr. Sarah Frias-Torres, a marine biologist investigating goliath grouper (also known as jewfish) in Florida and other marine megafauna (ocean giants) worldwide. The blog name was inspired by Cynthia Shaw’s book “Grouper Moon”. The word Moon was changed to it’s Spanish translation Luna, to reach out to both English and Spanish readers. Currently, Dr. Frias-Torres is a research collaborator with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC and the Smithsonian Marine Station in Fort Pierce, Florida, USA.
