   For your information.

   Dear List members,

   On 19 August, a lionfish was spotted and photographed on Honeymoon Reef,
   Ciceron Bay, Saint Lucia.  The Fisheries department verified its identify,
   requested authorized divers to search for it to remove it and called a
   meeting of the cross-sectoral Lionfish Taskforce for early next week to
   activate the rapid response plan.

   The Soufriere Marine Management Association (SMMA) also received reports of
   sightings in the Grenadines: Salines Bay, Mayreau, on 17 Aug and Sandy
   Island, Cariacou, on 19 Oct.  These have not been verified independently.
