CAYMANSPEAK: MARL ROAD
 
Caymanspeak: Marl Road
 
Where is the Marl Road? Don't get confused searching for the Marl Road on your Cayman Islands road map. In local Caymanian dialect, the marl Road (mah'rl rode) is not an actual road but means the word on the street or hearsay. Often times, even though the Marl Road has the scoop on local issues before the media, it should not be relied upon as the main source for local news.

On September 6-8, join the Alexander Hotel and the Brac Scuba Shack for a Lion Fish Derby on Cayman Brac. Prizes will be given for winners in various categories including the most captured lionfish. $305 includes 2 night stay, registration fee and Saturday evening dinner.
 
The Lionfish is an invasive species that is posing a threat to marine wildlife and reefs in the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean as a whole. No one knows exactly how they arrived in our waters, but the most accepted method is the accidental or intentional release of aquarium fish into the marine environment. These ravenous predators devour juvenile fish and crustaceans in very large quantities; are equipped with venomous spines which deter predators and can cause painful wounds in humans; and are capable or reproducing at a rate of 30,000 eggs every four days.
 
For reservations and details, please contact (345) 925-3215 or info@scubashack.com.
