... became a vegetarian at first because of compassion for animals, fish was the last thing I was able to stop eating. However, in these past years we started to have a serious invasion of this type of fish in our archipelago. This fish is damaging the coral reefs and even the mangroves. They reproduce very fast. It is like a parasite.
Here people are aware and encourage to order this fish as a meal in local restaurants, or else local fishermen will stop fishing them and catch snapper instead.
