CERMES Barbados Lionfish Sightings 2012
The first confirmed sighting of a lionfish in Barbados was in November, 2011. Throughout 2012, persons were encouraged to report sightings of lionfish. Where possible, sightings were confirmed by way of the fish being captured and handed over to the relevant persons for confirmation. In addition to confirmation, biological data (such as lengths, weigh, sex and maturity) were also collected.
