Lionfish (Invasive Species) Monitoring & Removal

SAVE THE REEFS BY HELPING RESEARCHERS CAPTURE INVASIVE LIONFISH!

Students assist the BVI Reef Guardians by finding, marking, and cataloguing invasive lionfish so that researchers can then locate and remove them from the reef. Students learn about the biology of lionfish and the impact such invasive species can have upon the ecology and health of coral reef ecosystems. Students discuss their findings and present their work to their peers and staff scientists.
