Tiger prawn now in Belizean waters, joins lionfish invasion

It was in 2008 when the Belize Fisheries Department confirmed the first sighting of the invasive Lionfish in Belizean waters. The increasing numbers of the lionfish threatening our ecosystem lead to numerous projects and tournaments to get rid of the invasive lionfish. Now there is another species that joins this creature in Belizean waters – the Tiger Prawn. Mr. Severo Guerreo Sr, (a local

The Caymans take the lionfish fight to a whole new level

The fight to combat the invasive lionfish (which is decimating coral reef fish domains in the Caribbean) took another step in the right direction when the Cayman Islands Tourism Association announced a new lionfish-spearing contest that doubles as a publicity push to increase demand for the fish from local restaurants – Restaurants And Watersports Operators To Partner For Major Lionfish Cul

These are a couple of questions that Belize, including other Caribbean nations, might have to consider as Caribbean ministers will come together to discuss a conch petition for CARICOM during Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2012 in Antigua and Barbuda. A United States petitio

We have our very own bonefish school

OK, it’s not nice to brag, but surely you’ll forgive me for talking about our private bonefish school. The way I understand it, bonefish do not normally school.

We snorkel with them, we fish them (catch and release), we practically have names for each one. Yes, we

Fly fishing blog on fishing Belize

But it seems they did a lot of fly fishing along the way, especially when they got to Belize. If you love fly

Belize permit fishing-Jeff caught our fish!

We have a resident very-hard-to-catch permit that we see snorkeling near our island all of the time. Fishermen go crazy trying to catch him… well, on one of the last trips of the season Jeff Griswold of North Bend, Washington caught him and he’s got photos to prove it! Jeff came in December of 2010 on our Adventure Island at Glover’s Reef trip, and then came back again 5 months l
