ECOMAR, the Belize Fisheries Department and other partners work with stakeholders in Belize to manage the invasive lionfish. Lionfish are expected to negatively impact an already stressed coral reef which has experienced pressures from over fishing and global warming. The concern is that the lionfish will reduce the number of native fish and lobster that traditional fishermen can catch. The project received initial funding from COMPACT and GCFI. The film describing the project was produced by Richard & Carol Foster from Wildlife Film Productions in Belize.
