A new breed of fish has been discovered, one that’s known to be capable of gobbling up up more than the average fish.
Grouper is one of the world’s smallest fish, measuring just 1.5cm (0.6 inches) long and weighing just 0.4kg (1.2 pounds).
Gouging fish has long been considered a nuisance for the ocean, but experts believe this species is just as capable of capturing a larger number of fish.
The new species is known as a grouper, but its new species name means “groupe” in English.
Groupers can grow to be up to five metres long and weigh up to 5.5kg (12.2lbs).
They can also grow to as much as 20cm (7.4 inches) in length, which makes them one of Australia’s biggest species.
Grups have been known to gobble up as much up to 10% of the fish they encounter.
The new fish, nicknamed fish mopy, has been described as “very robust and able to grab prey that can be up and down the line”.
It’s also known to eat anything, but has never been caught on camera.
It is not known how the new species got its name, but researchers say it could be a reference to its ability to use its long snout to snatch up prey.
“The ability to grab a larger fish is a huge advantage for a groupe,” Dr John Taylor, who studies grouper biology at the University of New South Wales, told ABC News.
“They can go into the water and they can grab anything, even if it’s a small fish.”
Groups are not only omnivores, but also can eat a variety of fish species.
“The new grouper has been nicknamed fishmopy, but it’s not yet known how it got its species name.
Scientists are hoping the new fish will help scientists better understand how grouper is evolving and what its potential to eat is.”
These guys are all very robust and they’re able to be able to gobp up quite a lot of food,” Dr Taylor said.”
It’s a really important aspect of the species that it can eat so much of the food that it is able to catch, and so we have to keep that in mind when we’re doing our research.
But even if the new creatures is not one of those new species, scientists say it will be an important tool for researchers to understand grouper.””
We’ve now got a bunch of them that have been described and named, and the only way to get a good sense of how much of them we can catch is to catch them all,” he said.
But even if the new creatures is not one of those new species, scientists say it will be an important tool for researchers to understand grouper.
“If you take a fish like a groupper, you have to go and study it because you can’t go out and find a group,” Dr Tim Taylor, a University of NSW entomology lecturer, said.
“If you can catch one of these, then you can really understand the whole picture of grouper evolution.”
“It might be something that we can look back on in the future and say, ‘How did that come to be?
What’s the potential to this species?'”
