Please stop what you are doing and look at these baby Lionfish! 

Remember:-

Lionfish in Atlantic = invasive = problem.

Lionfish in Pacific = native = not a problem.

❌ DO NOT FEED THE FISH 🐠

The final infographic from the Green Fins International Year of the Reef 2018 campaign is my favourite. 🐠 The first time I experienced fish feeding was at 16, snorkeling in Malaysia.
.
The guide didn’t ask, I just felt the rain of bread 🍞
all around me. Hundreds of reef fish swimming frantically around me,
little nibbles, slimy swim-bys, I hated it but didn’t question it.
Surely the guide knew best?
.
Fish feeding is now banned in
the marine park I was snorkeling in, but not all places are as strict.
We as tourists can demand better, we can ask people kindly to stop, we
can explain why, we can spread the word.
