Lionfish continues to be marketed in several restaurants and supermarkets in the country.
The sucess of the lionfish control program in DR was shared during the First ciguatoxic risk assessment in lionfish (Pterois volitans) in the Guadeloupean archipelago and commercial prefiguration in the FWI. This workshop was supported by the Fisheries Committee of Guadeloupe (CRPMEM), in collaboration with the Regional Activity Center for the Protocol on Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife (SPAW-RAC), on 10&11 July 2013 in Guadeloupe, FWI. This workshop is convened within the context of a project coordinated by CRPMEM that aims to assess the feasibility of promoting lionfish consumption and commercial fishing in Guadeloupe, St Martin and St Barthelemy. Analysis of the risk of it being contaminated by ciguatera has been undertaken.This workshop will present the final results of those studies and the opportunities to promote lionfish fishing and consumption. The workshop will be attended by local fishermen and stakeholders, and we wish to open it to representatives of neighboring countries (key managers, regional coordinators and fisheries officers from Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominican Republic, St Martin, St Barth, Netherland Islands, WECAFC Barbados, CRFM, CANARI Trinidad..) also affected by the problem of ciguatera to share their experiences and exchange on this important issue for the future of local fisheries
