    Be wary of grouper prices that are suspiciously low. Because the supply of Florida grouper is limited, the price is generally around $11 to $13 per pound wholesale filet value, and the retail value -- the price paid by consumers -- will be even higher. Prices that are considerably lower likely mean that the fish is not grouper, but instead is a substitute species of lesser value, such as basa, Asian swai, sutchi or tra catfish.

    Florida seafood industry experts say you should expect to pay the following approximate prices for Florida grouper in restaurants:

    High-end, white tablecloth restaurant
    Entree: $21 to $27
    Sandwich: $13 to $16

    Middle-price restaurant
    Entree: $16 to $20
    Sandwich: $10 to $12

    Lower-price restaurant
    Entree: $14 to $16
    Sandwich: $8 to $10

    BTW, I get a rediculously cheap (relative to this discussion) price on Red King Crab at work....I don't order them at restaurants much anymore.

    Basa is good, and we have been warned when competing for business to compare apples to apples.

    If you're in tourist trap heaven. I can have a grouper sandwich with fries and slaw today at Daddy's Grill here in Oldsmar for $5.50.
