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, an oceanographer and marine biologist investigating goliath grouper (also known as jewfish) in Florida and marine megafauna (ocean giants) worldwide. The blog name was inspired by Cynthia Shaw’s book “Grouper Moon”. The word Moon was changed to its Spanish translation Luna, to reach out to both English and Spanish readers. Currently, Dr. Frias-Torres is a research collaborator with institutions in the United States and internationally. When writing her blog, she writes as an independent scientist. Therefore, views expressed in the blog are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of any past, present or future supporting agency.
