Ruleo – The Antiguan Lionfish Slayer
Ruleo has been hunting lionfish and protecting the reefs from them since 2010!
A village raised boy from Falmouth Antigua, Ruleo has an immense love and appreciation of the marine environment. Ruleo is an avid sailor, fisher and diver, who feels more at home in the water than on land. He was one of the first to promote hunting lionfish in Antigua, and regularly encourages persons to hunt and consume them. Given his love for the coral reef ecosystem, Ruleo understands the need to manage and reduce the abundance of lionfish in these ecosystems, in order to provide them an opportunity to regain their health.
