Your favorite quote: Delicious Predator

Your mission statement: Lionfish is like a kid in a candy store, he can eat as much s he wants with no visit to the cash register.

Your latest endeavors and where they take place: Portobelo, Colón and Bocas del Toro Panama’s Caribbean side. We’ve been teaching regular divers to do lionfish hunting expeditions and during and between dives we teach them how to manipulate the fish and taste some of our catches at the moment in delicious Sashimi.

What efforts are you most proud of? 2015 NOAA study in Panama about the impact of regular divers in Lionfish populations. Results: 51% lower amounts of lionfish in regular diving spots. That’s huge.

Anything else you’d like us to know? Since 2009 we’ve had 103,345 lionfishes out of our Caribbean.
