Captain’s Cove Cooks Up Lionfish

Royal Resorts and Captain’s Cove Restaurant have joined the campaign to eradicate lionfish from the Mexican Caribbean by adding it to the menu.
Originally from the Indo-Pacific region, lionfish is an exotic species that is believed to have escaped from a Florida aquarium in the wake of a hurricane and is now found in the Caribbean. It preys on small reef fish and because it has no natural predators, it has spread through the area, devastating reef ecosystems.
In the Mexican Caribbean, fishermen are being encouraged to catch it and help limit its advance. It makes a tasty morsel and restaurants like Captain’s Cove are also doing their bit to support the eradication campaign by serving it in a variety of ways such as tiradito or ceviche and fried fillets. Visit Captain’s Cove Website for further information.
