Your Enviroment: RSE Lionfish Capture Montage from Cape Eleuthera, The Bahamas



The Red Lionfish (Pterois volitans) is a venomous predatory reef fish, endemic to the Indo-Pacific. First sighted in the waters of southeastern Florida in the late 1980’s, lionfish quickly established populations throughout the western Atlantic and Caribbean, most recently invading the Gulf of Mexico.

In January, 2011, the Lionfish Research Program was formed as a collaboration between CEI, the Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) and Simon Fraser University (SFU). The program also teamed up with the Bahamas Department of Marine Resources (DMR) in an effort to mitigate negative impacts and control lionfish populations.
