What We’re Doing
Every day, the reefs of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, are slowly being destroyed by the invasive Lionfish. The voracious Lionfish eat the juveniles of many species and upset the natural ecological balance. With no natural predators, they rapidly expand their numbers and range. The reefs are dying and with that, the source of food for other fish and humans too. You can help us change that.
A Turning Point Invasive Lionfish
A Turning Point
Safety. Respect. Integrity. Teamwork. Excellence. Stewardship. Astonishment
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.)
