Dear All

Divers at Ocean Encounters West, a diveschool at the western tip of Curacao, found a lionfish at Watamula a nearby divesite. The animal was captured later that day. Another one was supposedly observed  at East Point (which the complete opposite side of the island) 2 weeks ago but  there wasn't (in contrast to the aforementioned one) a photo or any other official documentation of that individual.
