Controlling Lion Fish Invasion in the Caribbean

Nov 13, 2013

Final report for controlling lion fish in DR

-no donations have been received in this period

-given that our lion fish strategy has taken this issue from its starting phase to communicate the arrival of Lion Fish to DR waters, giving out technical information and avoiding panic situations with local public, then develping monitoring tools to determine changes in population leves of lion fish, to then developing a local strategy, that follows the ICRI regional strategy, based on marketing and consumption of lion fish regularly. This has led to decrease (or control) of lion fish populations in most parts of DR, which was the goal of our strategy.

-Reef Check DR will terminate this global giving project, giving many thanks to all those who donated for this cause, helping to control lion fish populations in DR, and alliviating impacts to local marine fauna.
