Early this week, Coleman Roach and his wife, Janice, were swimming off Klein Bay when they noticed something odd – and dangerous. A Lionfish, the ravenous and deadly invasive fish that was first seen in Virgin Island waters only 18 months ago.
"The snorkeling here is fantastic," Janice said. "From our veranda you can even see Spotted eagle rays come in every am between 8-9:30 to feed. Its beautiful."
But this snorkel was different. Roach decided to act. He went back to his Klein Bay home (Villa Anansi) and prepared to do battle.
"My husband set out to either tag or capture the fish," Janice said. "We were lucky enough to spot him again and Coleman brought out his snorkel bag and a polestick and was able to lure him in after many attempts."
