Abstract

For a long time the goliath grouper was considered to be a single species distributed along both tropical coasts of the Americas (Eastern Pacific and Western Atlantic including the Caribbean). However, goliath groupers are now distinguished as being two different species and inhabiting the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean (Epinephelus itajara) as well as the Tropical Eastern Pacific (Epinephelus quinquefasciatus) (Craig et al., 2009). The Atlantic goliath grouper has been heavily exploited throughout its range. Heavy exploitation and severe population declines are also suspected in various distributional regions of E. quinquefasciatus (Mexican and Panamanian Pacific) (Craig, 2011; Erisman, 2013). Provided here is first time data on length–weight relationships (LWR) of E. quinquesfaciatus from specimens landed in different fishing ports on the Colombian Pacific coast.
