Invasive lionfish are a major problem facing Caribbean coral reefs. These animals have no natural predators here thanks to their venomous spines, and are voracious predators that can out-compete other important species on the reef.
One way you can help in the fight against invasive lionfish in Barbados is actually to eat them! These animals aren’t venomous when their spines are removed, and they actually taste delicious as a sustainable seafood option.
