Nassau groupers, Epinephelus striatus, can be found in the coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean as far north as the Carolinas of the United States down the Atlantic seaboard to southern Brazil. Their range stretches as far west as the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Nassau groupers are considered a migratory species in the Gulf of Mexico and are rarely seen there.
