ReefCI would like to thank all our guests who worked hard to remove (and eat!) over 7,000 invasive Lionfish in 2016. Without your help, ReefCI would not be possible. As many of you know, Lionfish have become the poster child for invasive species issues in the Caribbean and greater Atlantic Ocean. As Lionfish populations continue to expand, they threaten the well-being of coral reefs and other marine ecosystems, including the commercially and recreationally important fishes that depend on them. ReefCI, its partners, and most importantly you, are working hard to develop ways to prevent the further spread of this invasive and destructive species and control existing populations. Thanks again for all who contributed in 2016 – you have made a difference!
