In this episode we head down to beautiful Grand Anse Beach here in Grenada for a delicious fish BBQ on the beach! But this isn’t just any fish. Lion Fish were accidentally introduced to the Caribbean sea by aquariums sometime in 1992 and they have since reproduced and reeked havoc on the reef system.

They are only supposed to live in Southern Asia and the South Pacific and their presence around Grenada has had a very negative effect on the reef populations. Today, we’re eating them up for a good cause! Check out how they clean, smoke, bbq and eat these delicious but poisonous fish!

  1. Hi Guys,

    Love the production value on your videos! Really well done and it also shows the havoc that introduced exotics can reach. The mongooses have wiped out many snake, lizard and bird populations in Fiji. The British brought them over to control rats and snakes in the late 1800’s and since they had no natural predators, no creature could keep them in check. Now they’re all over the place. I find them cute, but I think they try to cull them to bring back some sense of balance.

    The Lion Fish looks darn tasty, as does Grenada in general. Added to the travel list, for sure. From the awesome weather to the beauty, to the laid back nature of the local folks, it’s right up our alley. Kelli noted how beautiful it was too, from seeing your photos and videos.

    Thanks guys! Tweeting from Fiji.


  2. Hey Ryan!

    Yep, exotic, introduced species can definitely wreak havoc on a place. I didn’t realize that about the mongoose in Fiji?! Interesting, thanks for sharing that with us. Thanks for the kind words about the video as well, it’s nice to hear that people like them, you know?! haha. We love doing the GoatLife TV as they’re fun to make and it shows people who we are and what we’re about.

    You two definitely need to get to Grenada, as we need to get to Fiji! Seriously, it’s high on our list.

    Thanks so much for the comment, much appreciated.

    Cheers from Grenada!
