You won't see me coming....
Shame it wasn't 'groupie' ...
Not a typo. Certain species of fish are actually called gropers in Australia. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_groper
I enjoy your "look at the spelling mistakes" bits but, as an Aussie, I'm afraid you got it wrong here. In Oz we spell it "groper". For instance, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_groper . We also call several fish similar to what you'd call a "grouper", cod, no similarity to the Atlantic cod at all. Just local names and local spellings, there are no such things as "correct" common names for animal species. Dick from Oz.
Oh sorry, I should mention the fish most likely shown here is one of these https://australianmuseum.net.au/queensland-groper-epinephelus-lanceolatus-bloch-1790. Note the spelling is normally "groper" but "grouper" is also acceptable. Dick from Oz.
Well, goodness! I stand corrected.
