Invasive Lionfish

The Indo-Pacific lionfish is an invasive species in the Atlantic Ocean & Caribbean Sea. Lionfish are predators with a voracious appetite, no natural predators, and a rapid rate of reproduction. They are destroying the natural balance of the reefs by over consuming reef fish and juveniles, threatening marine life and the reef itself.

Upcoming Events

Lionfish are found from 10' to over 300' deep

The "Purse Trap" is a non-containment, no bait, trap that catches Lionfish with very little by-catch. The Lionfish are drawn to the white lattice called the Fish Aggregation Device (F.A.D.)

Your tax deductible donation of $175 to sponsor a deep water lionfish trap helps to build and test lionfish traps and educate the public.

Former Prime Minister 0f St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sir James Mitchell, endorses the ReefSave project at the Bequia "Open House" on 27 AUG 2018
