The search is on for the person who shot a Goliath grouper with a spear gun.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission says a snorkeler in Jupiter reported finding the fish alive near the US 1 bridge. It had a stainless steal shaft in its head.
FWC sent out its research dive team who confirmed it.
Officials remind everyone it is illegal to harvest Goliath grouper.
