Honduran Islands of Utila and Roatan and Current Events

Hello Divers,

We have just returned from another international dive adventure.  This one was to the Honduran Islands of Utila and Roatan.  For this week of diving we privately chartered one of newest and largest dive Liveaboards in the world, The Utila Aggressor.  Our group of 18 spent this Spring Break diving the various reefs, sea mounts, and wreck dives.  On one dive site, Cara A Cara, we enjoyed the company of 6 or so Caribbean Reef Sharks which made for some excellent photo opportunities.  Another site had several 50-150 lbs Black Groupers and Cubera Snappers with us for most of the dive.  One fish we did not want to see was quite abundant. 
As many of you know, the Lionfish is an invasive species to the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf waters.  In the Indian and Pacific Oceans this beautiful fish has natural predators that keep it from taking over.  This is not the case in the Caribbean.  They rapidly reproduce here and are indiscriminate predators.  We were primarily taking photos while diving but we did manage to kill over 100 of the Lionfish while we were there.  Lionfish are excellent in Ceviche and we even had some Lionfish Pizza.  If you are interested in seeing some more pictures from this trip please go to Mark’s photo website at marktant.com
