      Whats Grouper?

      Here is the Florida Grouper:

      Description:  Groupers, one of Florida's most important commercial fish, are members of the sea bass family, Serranidae, and are found in tropical and warm temperate waters worldwide.  The Serranidae has over 400 species which are found around coral reefs and rocky ledges of the coastal shelf.  Because of their preferred habitat, groupers and other family members are most easily accessible by hook and line fishing.  The varieties most common in this area are; Black Grouper, which has a gray or olive body coloration with black blotches and brassy spots and gently rounded preopercle.  They are common to 40 pounds but may weigh as much as 100 pounds.  Red Groupers are brownish red with blotches on the sides and black dots around the eyes.  The lining of the mouth is scarlet orange.  They are common to about 15 pounds.  The firm, lean, white-flaked flesh contains no intramuscular bones.  The skin is tough and strongly flavored and should be removed during cleaning.

      Availability:  Grouper can be found throughout the Gulf of Mexico and in the South Atlantic.  The bulk of the red grouper is harvested off the coast of Florida between Tampa and Fort Myers.  Black Groupers are scattered throughout the Gulf and South Atlantic.  Locally, May and June are the months when the supply is most plentiful although, grouper is available fresh year round.  Because the demand for fresh grouper continues to exceed domestic production, it is also imported from the Yucatan Peninsula, which is also a primary harvest area.

      Nutritional Value:  Grouper is low in calories, and fat and a good source of protein.  A 3-ounce portion of grouper yields a mere 78.2 calories and a trace of fat.  It also contains approximately 22.9 mg  calcium, 16.4 g protein, 410.5 mg potassium, 137.7 mg phosphorus, 45 mg sodium, 121.5 IU  vitamin A and 7.4 mcg folate.

      No just kidding here you go:

                I've played twice.  I like the idea.  If I were in FLA more I would probably play it more because of the free ticket involved.  What can I say?  I'm a sucker for free stuff...

                How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    I play the Grouper when I go Florida and hit 3 out of 5 on Fantasy 5 a couple of times and got some more free tickets for matching 2.  What I like about it, it's all QPs and you do get 6 tickets for $5. It's a nice idea for the tourists that want to play the lottery and don't have a favorite game.
