Grunts in the Pacific Ocean belong to a huge family that has hundreds of different sub types. Their name is no coincidence, and comes from the pig-like grunting sounds that come from their throats, and as a result they are also called “pigfish” or “porkfish”. They are a fish family that is found on both coasts in Costa Rica and the waters surrounding it on different islands. A lot of these sub types are found by scuba divers in the Pacific Ocean to spot different types of fish in the coral reefs found in the ocean. Grunts belong to the fish family “Haemulidae”. The grunts in the Pacific Ocean travel to a lot of other places like Florida and the Bahamas where they are hunted for sport as well as their meat. Grunt fish are caught for fun and because their meat is known to be one of the best-tasting.
