Baqueta Grouper / Gulf Coney

Baqueta Groupersalso known as Gulf Coneys or Rooster Hinds, have high, deeply notched dorsal spines and bold dark 'mustaches' around the upper jaw. They occur in a brown and red variety and are prevalent in deep water, along vast rural stretches of the Baja California Peninsula, where they voraciously prey on fish and crustaceans. The Brown Baqueta variety are prevalent on the Pacific side of the Baja, and the red variety occur predominately inside the Gulf of California.
