Lion Fish Capture Study, Turks and Caicos Islands

Yesterday I with my good friend Rob took part in a lion fish capture study with the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) and Turks and Caicos Reef Fund (www.tcreef.org)in the Turks and Caicos Islands to study some different capture techniques. Lion Fish are an incredibly invasive species of fish that have managed to find there way to the Caribbean from the Indo-Pacific and are definitely doing a number on the local populations of reef life here. Culling them is one way to ensure that they don’t kill off many the indigenes species of the Caribbean. Image

Montreal-born photographer and filmmaker Will Allen is captivated by the spectacular vitality of the underwater world. This fascination has led him to explore some extraordinary locales – from photographing sub-aquatic caves in Mexico, to filming champion surfers in Tahiti (as seen in the 3D IMAX film Ultimate Wave Tahiti). His stunning images of 10-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater have been published in National Geographic. His preferred subject is the beautiful but elusive great white shark.
