are some of the most sensitive eco systems on Earth.
In the mid 80’s, a Lionfish, an invasive species, was introduced to the coral reefs of the Caribbean Sea and the USA Atlantic Ocean’s coastline, starting with Florida coastline.
Since then, the population of some of the native fish have been declining, while the population of the Lionfish has increased drastically.
At this point, only a few states, universities, dive clubs, and volunteer scuba divers have developed a response plan to stop the Lionfish’s invasion. Some of the supermarkets and restaurants have started selling Lionfish.
Lionfish could be a delicious meal and a great supplement for other endangered fish that are part of our menu.
See Siesta Sand for more information.

The main objectives of this project are to raise the public awareness about the threat imposed by Lionfish invasion, provide information about the response plan and actively participate in an effort of reducing the impact of Lionfish expansion.
