Mixed reviews on lionfish delicacy


Share post:

THE VENOMOUS AND VORACIOUS lionfish might have found their match.

They are now ending up on the plates of diners at restaurants as divers continue to spear them on a daily basis.

And even though one South Coast restaurant has reported the predator never really took off on its menu, another restaurant, this one on the West Coast, said its patrons cannot get enough of it.

Fisheries biologist at the Fisheries Division, Chris Parker, revealed there were a number of people who were now hunting lionfish and either consuming them or selling them to restaurants.

“It is appearing on the tables of a number of restaurants and on the menu of restaurants around the island. So basically there is somewhat of a demand for it now in terms of the food industry,” he said.
