The Greasy Grouper (Epinephelus tauvina), also known as the Arabian grouper, is an Indo-Pacific fish species of economic importance belonging to the family Serranidae.

The greasy Grouper we find it in the Red Sea and along the East African coast, east to the Pitcairn group, north to Japan, and south to Lord Howe Island.

Epinephelus tauvina grows up to 75 cm in length. These fish have a wide, upward-facing mouth with rather thick lips. A group of black spots is visible on the body at the base of the rear of the dorsal fin.  Five vertical darker shaded bars may also be present on their bodies.
