Although many species are small, in some cases less than 10 cm (3. 9 in), the giant grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus) is one of the largest bony fishes in the world, growing to 2. 7 m (8 ft 10 in) in length and 400 kg (880 lb) in weight. Representatives of this group live in tropical and subtropical seas worldwide.
