While the Black Grouper isn't the most difficult fish to find in theory, it can become challenging if you're not fishing in exactly the right spot at the right time of day. The creature spawns in The Marrows, specifically at night (after 7pm)—don't search during the day because you'll have no luck and you will catch a Stingray instead.

To find the fishing spot, head to Little Marrow and look to the south of the small town's dock to see some bubbles. You need Shallow fishing to fish here, so make sure the fishing type is equipped first. Once it is, use your Shallow Rod to catch a Black Grouper.

If you're lucky, you may also pull up an Aberrant version of the Black Grouper: a Tusked Grouper or a Voltaic Grouper. These are mutant versions of the fish that sell for more, depending on length and freshness. So if you're looking to earn some extra cash, make sure to head to the Fishmonger as soon as possible to avoid rot.
