Why It’s Important
Lionfish are an invasive species to the Atlantic Ocean. They were introduced in the mid-’80s when Hurricane Andrew destroyed an aquarium that displayed them. Since that time they have reproduced at an alarming rate. They can lay up to 50,000 eggs every three days and do not become part of the food chain due to their toxicity.
Lionfish have very few predators and are highly resistant to disease and infection. However, they themselves are ferocious predators. They eat anything they can put into their mouths. This includes seahorses, baby lobsters, shrimps, and over 100 different species of fish. They live for up to 30 years and one lionfish can consume more than 5,000 fish per year.
Lionfish are destroying our native coral reefs by eating the fish and shellfish that maintain these reefs. We need to support all efforts to restore our ocean from this negative impact.
Help Us Save Our Native Aquatic Ecosystem
The ultimate goal of Lionfish Central is to effectively utilize our high-tech services to help eradicate lionfish from our waters. We need every organization’s efforts to be successful in order to have the greatest impact for reducing the number of lionfish threatening our native species!
