Here are some important fishy facts to keep in mind if you live in, or plan to visit the Caribbean.
In Barbados, and the Caribbean as a whole, there are two species of fish that everyone should know about:
The Hero: Parrotfish a.k.a Chubs
And the Villain: Lionfish
Lionfish are an invasive species that has taken over Caribbean coral reefs, and Parrotfish are the local reef fish that clean the reefs, create beautiful white sand, and balance the ecosystem as a whole.
