I've been involved in this lionfish trouble ever since I started to notice the amount of lionfish wherever I went diving in the Caribbean. I love the biodiversity of our waters in Panama and with a group of divers decided to start hunting lionfish during our recreational dives.
Since then I've been teaching people and coastal communities how to manage the fish in and out of the water, how to clean the fish and take advantage of this wonderful source of protein. That's the main goal of the CTFF and it has been working very well. But we need more support and funds to spread the word to more people and that need resources!
Please help us show other Caribbean countries how to reduce the impact of lionfish through recreational Scuba diving to protect the local species and the way of life of the coastal communities.
