Lobster season to start soon again

Typical crab and lobster potsIt’s Sunday morning and while most people are still in bed or enjoying a lazy early Sunday morning breakfast, a fisherman with diving fins and a battered-looking harpoon comes out of the water with that morning’s catch.

He proudly shows off three large good looking lobsters despite the fact that there are still two weeks to go until the yearly fishing ban on spiky crustaceans is lifted.

Parrot fish to help reverse reef destruction

Healthy reefs sustain a huge variety of biodiversityToday is World Ocean Day, and despite the fact that most people love the ocean, the human race is doing its utmost best to destroy it, with overfishing and using the ocean as a dumping wasteland as two of the most obvious examples in a long list of other misdemeanors.

Especially reef structures around the world have been paying a hefty price, with more than 50% decline in living corals throughout the Caribbean over the past half century. Luckily there are some silver linings to the clouds, and your consumer choices can also help. Read on to know more.

Dominican sea turtles

Sea turtles are incredibly majestic yet six out of seven types are endangeredOn some days when you’re kiting in the bay of Cabarete you might be forgiven to think that the conservation plight of the sea turtle is not such a dire one as you’ll see loads of these reptiles (contrary to popular belief, turtles are not amphibians) coming up for air.

Unfortunately, six of the seven types of sea turtles in existence are labelled as either vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered. As today is World Turtle Day we thought it would be a nice idea to highlight these majestic creatures and give some information on conservation efforts.

It’s unseasonably hot

Temperatures are forecast to stay abnormally highHave you also been wondering why these last few days it’s been unseasonably hot in Cabarete? Temperatures have been at a near record for the time of the year, with peaks of 38 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit). There has been little to no wind and since today limited visibility.

To find the answer to this weather pattern we have to look at the Saharan desert. A Saharan dust storm that’s coming our way from the East has been causing soaring temperatures, no rain and as of today hazy conditions.

Yummy lionfish

The lionfish - beautiful but destructive in its non-native environmentSaid to have been released into the Atlantic Ocean by possibly well-meaning home aquarium owners in Southern Florida in the mid-eighties, the lionfish has first been spotted in the Dominican Republic in 2008 in the waters around Monte Cristi. These beautiful yet venomous predatory fish have no natural predators of their own in these tropical waters and their numbers have spread rapidly ever since, wreaking havoc along the way.
