Reports and incidents relating to monster fish appear to be on the increase.
Giant muskie (3.5 ft+) , giant groupers (300lbs. +) and who knows what else are potential threats to swimmers and divers as well. While I am not sure how often these attacks occur, they are getting attention now.
The video below uncovers the truth behind these occurrences.
So as it turns out, the giant goliath grouper is an apex predator. This clip compares them to the other predators like sharks. Giant groupers very aggressive and known to hide and stalk their prey before attacking.
Furthermore, scuba tanks & dive equipment has been found in the bellies of these giant fish. Therefore, I guess its diver beware.
The following video explains and examines reported attacks by grouper and muskies in the us.
Interesting. Apparently the threats posed by these fish increases exponentially with their size. Have you had any experiences with groupers or muskies?
That being said, as with anything else – things happen. And so I don’t think I would to as far as to say these are “Destroyer Fish”.
