FLORIDA KEYS (CBSMiami) –  An 18-year-old was placed under arrest after reeling in a goliath grouper in Key West.

On August 26th, Joshua Anyzeski caught the prohibited species, removing it from the water to take a picture.

The picture circulated on social media, which tipped off officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
