On the 17th of October 2020, the “ENALIA PHYSIS – Environmental Research Centre” conducted a lionfish removal with the help of the “Removal Action Teams (RATs)” of the “RELIONMED-Life” project. The removal took place in the Xylofagou area. A total of 11 divers participated in the event, removing nine lionfish from the area. Another five lionfish were missed. We would like to thank the volunteer divers for supporting the project’s actions and for helping control the lionfish abundance and distribution in Cyprus waters.
