Marine Life of Puerto Rico

Recently, the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation in Rincon launched a new site for the community called marinelifpr.org.  This site was constructed to allow users to increase their knowledge about reefs, and the organisms that call them home, and share their photos and videos with the rest of the world.  The site will be continually updated and we hope with photos from users like yourself.  If you have any photos you would like published on the site please click here and follow the directions.  Thanks!

Lionfish Evaluation in Reserva Marine Tres Palmas

 Ten individuals of Lionfish were found during an evaluation in the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve.  The highest density of these sightings were on the southern end of the reserve off the bank shelf from Calle Surf south towards the marina.  Soon, we will be participating in eradicating these individuals from the reserve.  We will keep you posted. 

To see a summary of the evaluation of Lionfish in RMTP please click here.
