Video: Eater Highlights Lionfish & Fishermen

March 23, 2023

The popular food-focused Eater media channel has featured Bermuda fishermen and chefs and their work in the effort to fight the invasive lionfish.

The Eater story said,”In the Atlantic Ocean, lionfish are an invasive species that eat many fish in local waters. Bermuda-based fishermen and chefs have found a way to help curb that: “We’ve got this problem fish, let’s eat ‘em,” says Chris Flook, a fisherman, lionfish expert, and environmentalist.

“Flook says that some fish populations in the Atlantic could completely disappear as the huge population of lionfish feed on them.

“The danger lionfish pose to local fish populations can only be curbed by human activity: hunting and eating. Once the lionfish are caught, they’re delivered to local restaurants where chefs turn them into different dishes, including ceviche.”

“It’s a very firm fish; it’s compared to a red hake,” says Alfred Konrad, chef and owner of Wahoo’s Bistro and Patio. “And since the lionfish only eats live fish, it has a very nice and clean taste.”
