In the world of Caribbean diving the word Lionfish sends shivers down the spine of any eco minded dive enthusiast. This venomous creature has no natural predators in the Caribbean and can wreck havoc on the sea life in days. Native to Asia it is thought aquarium owners dumped some Lionfish into the warm Atlantic introducing this villain into the eco system. The Lionfish is a voracious predators feeding on many varieties of fish. The Bonaire Marine Park has a great link to read more. In the meantime enjoy Timmy Lienhardt’s photos of the lionfish he observed (and caught) in Bonaire.
