Feeding the Groper

The groper/grouper weighs around 250kg, and is one of the largest fish inhabiting Australian waters.

The Dickson Inlet is all saltwater, therefore it is home to a rich biodiversity of marine life. Pelagic species use the Inlet for access to the large schools of bait fish and prawns that inhabit the protected waters of this saltwater system. The groper has a constant supply of fresh food, and therefore can live quite happily under the pontoon at On The Inlet Seafood restaurant Port Douglas.

The species name of George the Queensland groper is Epinephelus lanceolatus. The Queensland groper can attain sizes of up to 288 kilograms and reach lengths of 3 meters or more. Its favorite food, when living in estuaries, is Mud crabs! Local fishermen often complain of crab traps being crushed by these big hungry fish. The Queensland groper moves in and out of the inlet in order to breed in late October and early November. That is why sometimes there are no fish around and on other occasions there may be as many as 5 groper beneath the pontoon at On The Inlet Seafood restaurant Port Douglas.

On the Inlet Seafood Restaurant Port Douglas offers a happy hour special from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

The special includes a bucket of prawns and beer/wine/champagne for $16.50AUD. Once you have peeled the prawns you can feed the prawn scraps to the smaller fish that reside beneath the restaurant decking. This is a great activity for children and adults alike.
