Welcome to HLF, jofrijon and a happy Chinese New Year to you too. :)

The CNR time actually means 'catch and release' time. It's a rough gauge on the time limit you can keep the fish out of water should you want to release it back. This can be very subjective to the ambient temperature as well as how traumatized the fish is from hooking up. It shouldn't be followed exactly but it should be something used to compare the hardyness to other fishes. :)

not only groupers, as long they are too small for consumption it is advised to release them back into the water asap.
