LIONFISH ON BARBECUE

Lionfish, which came from the Red Sea via Suez Channel to the Mediterranean Sea, have become abundant in the Mediterranean and Aegean parts of Turkish Coastal Waters. Excessive proliferation and great negative impacts in Turkish marine ecosystem have been observed since it is not consumed due to the poison of fin rays. We started “LIONFISH ON BARBECUE campaign as Nature and Science Society in order to raise awareness of the fishermen and the public about the fact that lionfish is a delicious fish that can be eaten.  Nature and Science Society organize this campaign to reduce the harmful pressure on the marine ecosystem by encouraging its fishing and bring the lionfish to the economy.
