Grunt, colorful marine fish (family Pomadasidae) found in warm waters. The pigfish (Orthopristis chrysopterus) is a grunt found along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. Grunts are named for the sounds they make by grinding their teeth, which are in the throat. Many species are important food fish.
