Diving in Green Turtle Cay seeing other divers petting groupers. This disturbs the mucous coating and is harmful to the fish.

I have seen a few divers touching marine life, I try to discourage this. Looking is enough. For them its like a stranger coming to your house and rubbing your head.

I agree with George1224, I tell people not to touch so other people can enjoy the beauty later, as far as a grouper, I would not mess with them. They like to suck masks off divers.
