The Fisheries Committee of Guadeloupe, FWI, (CRPMEM), in collaboration
with the SPAW-RAC, organized a 2-day workshop entitled "First ciguatoxic
risk assessment in lionfish (Pterois volitans) in the Guadeloupean
archipelago and commercial prefiguration in the FWI " on 10&11 July 2013

The main goal was to assess the feasibility of promoting lionfish
consumption and commercial fishing as a mean to promote the involvement
of professional fishing in the control of the lionfish populations in
FWI. The workshop presented the final results of those studies and the

three islands listed above. Many caribbean experts participated.
