What is Gag Grouper?
Gag Grouper is most commonly referred to in restaurants as Black Grouper (although the true black grouper is a Carborita Grouper). It has a firm mild fillet and is an excellent choice for dinner. It also happens to be one of our personal favorites among all the Grouper species we are able to source.
Not Shipped As Whole Fish
Due to the large size of these groupers, we offer fillets only with online shipping.

Sustainably Sourced Gag Grouper from Florida
Wild Seafood Market is located in West-Central Florida on Pinellas County’s Gulf Coast. Our boats leave the local harbor of John’s Pass and fish responsibly, following all guidelines set forth by The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission. Going even further beyond what’s required we also ensure each fish we catch is tagged with the Gulf Wild tracking tags. Gulf Wild is a fish tracking system developed by a group of fishing captains who saw the importance of tracking their wild catch. In effect, this program guarantees that the fish you serve was sustainably sourced.
