Lionfish is a visual video essay with images of Qunitana Roo, MX and an audio interview with Iran Beltran Chan, a fisherman and one of the longest-standing residents of the pueblo of Akumal, MX. Chan speaks of how the pueblo has changed over time due to sea turtle ecotourism and the development of Tulum as a vacation destination, resulting economic, social and environmental impacts on the local community.
