It is commonly known with commercial fishers and many recreational anglers, that at specific times of the year, Groper need to be close to shore, under waterfalls, near river confluences etc to flush their internals with fresh water.
This is essential in their life cycle and kills parasites that generate in salt water.
The time of year varies from area to area but I recall Fiordland – South Westland area is usually around February.
