    Reported by:

    Canyon one of the famous dive site at Dahab in Egypt. But horde of divers scare away all fith there. This is the only time when there were no other divers in the canyon. At this time there were no flights and the entire coast was empty. I was one of the few who dived at that time. Never before have I seen so many fish in popular dive sites.

    This is such a topical concern! To deliberate abundance of marine wildlife in a negative light, as is the case of an invasive species! Lion fish are adept predators, and compromise every ecological niche they have been released into by human negligence. With few apex predators, like sharks, or groupers to keep their numbers in check, they are wreaking havoc on reefs! Gorgeous click of a lethal, venomous hunter, vital in ecosystems they're endemic to, a catastrophe in the ones they have pilfered.
