Harpoon Fishing Excursion

Outdoor Actividades

You can observe the traditional ways that locals in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere catch fish by joining a harpoon fishing excursion. You will watch as locals perform necessary culling of the invasive, albeit stunningly colorful, lionfish that poses a threat to the balance of the biosphere. Reducing the numbers of lionfish in the area has become a cause of great urgency as the predatory fish, which is not native to the biosphere, has become a serious pest Ecological programs supported by the local government have encouraged the culling of the lionfish, which is actually very tasty and ideal for making ceviche and other raw fish dishes.
