R is Fishy

Roi is a colorful fish from the grouper family, that obviously wasn't named by the locals because Hawaiians don't have much use for the letter R. (See previous post.)Territorial and invasive, the fish is becoming an annoying member of the undersea reefs around Hawaii.


  1. Is it edible? Sounds like they need to fish it out of the area.

  2. Doesn't seem like they have much use for the fish either.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Invasive species; never a good thing for an ecosystem.

  4. Hi human, Eve,

    I wonder if the Roi has coral sex on the undersea reefs?

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny the friendly host of the Alphabark Challenge! :)

  5. I've never tasted this fish. Boy, between the large crabs and fish invading, the waters of Hawaii must be changing.
