Grouper is one of consumption fish which is demanded excessively by local consumers and foreign consumers. Hybridization of grouper has been performed considerably that produce the good genetic quality of hybrid variants. One of grouper fish which has good genetic in its growth is kertang grouper fish. Nowadays many hatcheries performing hybridization between kertang grouper fish and tiger grouper fish, however observation of the hybrid abnormality has not been performed yet. Abnormality is able to increase since genetic causes, so that observation of abnormality occurrence in cantang hybrid grouper fish in Situbondo, JawaTimur, Indonesia in May - July in 3 times grading of juvenile stadia was performed.
