The Kermadec Islands support the world's last remaining large population of these fish. Spotted Black grouper ( Epinephelus daemelii) grow to 2 metres long, all begin life as females and change sex when they get to around 1 metre in length. They are a protected fish anywhere in New Zealand and have extra protection with marine reserve status at the Kermadecs
