Being an island surrounded by fish, seafood is among the most abundant and sought after cuisine in the Cayman Islands. Local fish include: Several species of Snapper, Tuna, Grouper, Conch, and a variety of other local fish and crustaceans. The latest fish of choice among many restaurateurs are Lionfish; due in part to their unique delicious flavor and wide range of preparation methods; and also because Lionfish are an evasive species in the Cayman Islands local dive companies bring fresh Lionfish to many of the best seafood restaurants daily.
