The Lionfish Working Group (LWG) is multidisciplinary and has members from across Belize. The intention is for active membership to include government authorities, conservation practitioners, marine scientists, tourism stakeholders, food industry stakeholders, and commercial fishery stakeholders. The intention of maintaining a diverse membership is to ensure that the concerns, interests, and needs of each group are fully incorporated in lionfish management action planning.
