Suggestions and corrections are welcome. I will then add them to the first post.

Bonací is like a generic name for grouper no?

Lets try to restrict it to fish we may actually get spearfishing. No point listing very deep water species, the list will get too long to reference conveniently.

Pargo

In Puerto Rico

Hog fish = Capitan
African Pompano = Pampano africano
Red Snapper = Chillo
Yellowtail Snapper = Culirrubia
Dog Snapper = Pargo Colorao
Mutton Snapper = Sama and some old fishermans call it Manchego
Barracuda = Picuda o Picua tambien le dicen Barracuda
Lesser amberjack = Medregal
Spotted Eagle = Chucho
Morays = Morena o Congre
Great hammerhead = Tiburon Martillo
Mangrove Snapper = Pargo Gris But here they confuse it with Cuberas
Lane Snapper = Arrallao
Horse eye Jack = jurel Ojon

You missing the tiger Grouper = Mero Tigere

I'm not 100% sure but i beleive Schoolmaster they call it Pargo marillo
And Yellow jack i think is Cojinua.


So far that i can recall easy. Marco and Rodolfo can give you more local names.

Hope this helps your list

Nunca e escuchado ese nombre Bonaci. Aqui casi todo de esa especie se le conoce como Mero.
Algunos diran Aguaji, Cherna, etc. pero al final el nombre casero seria Mero.

Dan Ive done some searches and did find Civil too. My apologies. Also the Mero Tigre is exactly what Ive known as Bonaci. Its been a long time but Im pretty sure. Maybe when some other Cubanos come around they can help.

I found Bonaci Gato in one webpage as a Cuban name for Tiger Grouper. Anyone heard this before????

Thanks Core, Toledo. I believe the Tiger grouper is known to be ciguato.

More than yellow fin?? Cause Ive eaten alot of that.
I think Cigua is all relative to size(in proportion total growth) and area. The more it eats and has available to eat(algae, and small fish that eat the algae), the quicker it becomes ciguato.

I should've said that's what I was told in Cuba. I've never actually seen one.
