On the 24th and 25th of May, the “Marine & Environmental Research (MER) Lab” (scientific coordinator in the “RELIONMED-LIFE” project) organized two training events in Limassol and at the “Cape Greco Environmental Centre” in Protaras, respectively. The seminars were held in order to train the selected members who will be participating in the upcoming coordinated lionfish removals and to set the rules and guidelines for participating in the upcoming lionfish removal derbies. The “University of Plymouth” attended the event, as well, and gave a presentation during the seminar. All the participants had the opportunity to test the lionfish removal gear and share their opinions and concerns. Most of the participants were highly aware of the lionfish problem and they were keen to help the “RELIONMED’s” researchers to tackle the lionfish invasion. In addition, the participants attended short presentations on safe handling and first aid response in case of a lionfish envenomation and on data collection.
