Carriacou means the ?Isle of Reefs?; therefore, the reefs around Carriacou have been a source of pride and financial sustainability for the people of Carriacou for generations. Since the arrival of the lion fish to Grenadian waters in 2011, lionfish has become one of the single largest threats to the ecological balance of the coral reef ecosystem around Carriacou.
