THE LIONFISH MISSION
Norman's Cay offers a special delicacy that makes an ecological impact. The Lionfish is an invasive species destroying reef fish populations in Florida, the Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico, in some places by as much as 90%. They have come to populate Bahamian waters in great numbers in recent years and have not been commercially fished until now. Inspired by Elisabeth Rosenthal's New York Times article entitled Invasive Species: Put It on a Plate and Eat It, in which Philip Kramer, director of the Caribbean program for Nature Conservancy challenges, "Instead of eating something like shark fin soup, why not eat a species causing harm, and with your meal make a positive contribution?" Norman's Cay management is proud of staking a definitive claim as being amongst the first New York City restaurants to offer the fish for public consumption. Developing Lionfish as a menu choice will help restore a healthy balance of marine life in Bahamian waters. Moreover, it is also considered a delicacy; delicious served the way the Bahamians enjoy it - grilled or fried, with a cajun sauce, or even as a soup - Norman's Cay enthusiastically rises to meet an ecological challenge and looks forward to feedback from the community.
