GREEN Solution to Lionfish Invasion

ReefSavers.org was founded to help in the effort to gain control of the Lionfish population in the southeast US and the Caribbean. We look to achieve this by not only going out and harvesting Lionfish but also developing a stable market in which supply can always meet the current demands. In the research we have done we have come to the conclusion that there is a current market for Lionfish that individual fishermen cannot effectively match. The nature in which Lionfish are currently harvested (SCUBA and spear) limits the number of fishermen that are able to harvest these fish that have taken over the reefs in the southeast US and the Caribbean. The current demand for these delicious fish is at a standstill, for the fact that a single fisherman or team cannot keep up with demand.
