Dealing with Lionfish
Lionfish in the Caribbean tend to be large, colourful and beautiful. There's a reason they grow so large - they are not a native Caribbean
species, and they have no natural predators here. They are voracious predators, hoovering up all the other reef fish, and growing to an enormous
size compared to their homeland in the Indo-Pacific. Because of the damage they do to the local reef life, they are considered a pest, and the
dive leaders try to keep their numbers down by spearing them. It helps that they are good to eat, so they don't go to waste.
