Husbandry

Haemulon plumieri is a saltwater fish that is found offshore in the Gulf Of Mexico as well as the Caribbean Sea, south to Brazil. These fish go by a few different names including, Black Grunt, Boar Grunt, White Snapper, Flannelmouth Grunt, Key West Grunt and the Redmouth Grunt. Normally found no deeper than 100 feet, these fish get their names from the grunting sounds that they are known to produce. These sounds are made by their air bladders amplifying the grinding of their pharyngeal teeth.

The distribution of Haemulon plumieri is limited to the western Atlantic Ocean, from the Chesapeake Bay to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, south to Brazil. It has also been introduced to Bermuda. It occurs rarely in waters north of South Carolina (U.S.).

Haemulon plumieri is considered a generalized carnivore, scavenging benthic crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms, and small fishes.
