Lionfish Poses Threat to Belize Barrier Reef Ecosystem

The “Eat Lionfish” campaign was launched as a way to spread awareness of the growing threat that lionfish pose to the health of the reef. Dianira Enriquez is the president of the Lionfish Jewellery group, whose goal is to extract as much lionfish as possible from Belizean waters. Enriquez explains that this fish eats over a dozen different species, some of which are vital to maintaining the balance of the marine ecosystem. Enriquez will be participating in the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington D.C. to discuss solutions that will address some of our community’s challenges with mitigating the growth of the Lionfish population.
