    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Limon province has enough problems in different areas that impede their economic, social and cultural development. To this is added the threat of the lionfish, which preys on native fish that support artisanal fisheries.

    Given the situation, Costa Rica has launched a campaign which seeks to increase consumption of the fish in order to control its population.

    President Luis Guillermo Solís provided support for the campaign to control the population growth of this marine predator, through human consumption.

    During his visit to Puerto Viejo, as part of his tour in the province of Limón, the president indicated that this species is very aggressive and threatens native species, affecting the economy of many fishermen.

    Fernando Mora, Deputy Seas, Coastal Wetlands and the Ministry of Environment and Energy (Minae), explained that the campaign is also supported by the Costa Rican Institute of Fishing and Aquaculture (Incopesca) and public universities.

    “We seek to reduce the number of this species and to achieve this we are promoting fishing and eating lionfish. MINAE is accompanying the community to try to mitigate the effects of this fish in the marine ecosystem,” Mora said.
