Bonaire is a small Caribbean island renowned for its crystal-clear waters and vibrant marine life. One of the island’s most prized inhabitants is the Caribbean lobster, a spiny crustacean that can be found hiding in the rocky crevices of Bonaire’s coral reefs.
Despite their popularity as a food source, Caribbean lobsters are also essential to Bonaire’s marine ecosystem. They help to maintain the balance of the reef by feeding on algae and other small organisms and are themselves preyed upon by larger fish and sharks.
