December 6th on the town square (time not yet announced) an event is planned called the “1º Muestra Gastronómica” de pez león. There was a meeting yesterday of officials, restauranteurs, fishermen, chefs, etc. They are training the fishermen about capturing and processing the fish. Officials discussed preparation and marketing, its safety for human consumption, and its negative impact on the local ecology and economy. (It eats lobster, grouper, etc and lacks predators.)
