Grouper????

Can anybody pinpoint to the exact identity of this catch. It does look like one but the scales on this fish are baffling me.

Good catch though :)

Definatly not a grouper. It's a Lucjanid but the species is hard to confirm as it appeares to have been scaled or at the very least spent a lot of time flappinf about on a jetty.

Take a couple of minutes to Google "Ike Jimi".

This is no Cod or Grouper for sure, it is a Lutjanidae as Ken says and she has spent a lot of time on the floor.

Given the fact she is caught somewhere around the Konkan, the most likely fish she could be is a Maori Sea Pearch - Lutjanus Rivulatus also called Blubberlip snapper as Santosh has already pointed out. I am 99.99% sure of this.

My next guess, based on the way she has lost her colour, is an Emperor Snapper or Red Emperor Lutjanus Sebae. I have seen Emperors fade and loose their colour after they are caught just like this one. But this is very unlikely.

Jbasmie, when just caught did she have darker red bands across her body or did she have a sort of intricate Jigsaw/Maori pattern over her body especially over the head?

Is this fish also called sweetlip Bobs? I had caught one at 12.30 night at Jaigad. It gives a good fight. The locals call it Hotyaa.

It is a blubberlip snapper and I do not know hou they taste but I surely know that it is a hell of a fighting fish. And surely they do grow more than 2 kg.

Regards,

Ali.. :lol:

Common names are always an issue, but this is not a sweetlip.

Maori Sea Pearch it is. I've caught them here as well on jig and bait. First time I've seen them with such pronounced stripes like the one in Jeen's picture.

We had taken a couple of small ones in Vengurla a few years back, but one of the locals who accompanied us told us that just 2 days before someone had taken two large ones there, the larger one weighing in at 6kgs and the other one was 4kgs. Both were taken on lure.

They do grow big, and put up amazing fight. I have seen one that was well over 6 kg. the local name of the fish is kumbharu as rightly mentioned by lion heart.

Hi Guys, Below is a picture of what we call the Maori Sea Perch. This fish was caught a couple of years ago on a swim bait in relatively shallow water and put up a great fight on light spinning tackle.
Like I said in my earlier post the ones we have here don't have pronounced stripes. :?

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.
