Trigger Happy in Belize

Henry is back in Belize, wading the shallow lagoons of what is the second largest barrier reef in the world. This time he's targeting Triggerfish, which will enter the lagoons from the ocean in search of food, such as small crustaceans, molluscs and urchins. Henry's casting a small hermit crab bait, prepared for him by his local guide. The idea is to cast with the wind and drop the bait right in front of the Trigger's nose. Once hooked they put up a great fight and are incredibly fast in the water. There are about 40 different species of Triggerfish, the most common being the 'Queen' with its incredibly vivid colour markings and the 'Ocean' which are dark grey in the water but become almost white under the stress of being hooked. It's these that Henry has in his sights, they are also known as Ocean Tallys. The Triggerfish gets its name from its ability to make its first dorsal fin rigid, as a means of avoiding being eaten, an angler can 'reset' this by pressing down on the third dorsal fin, as if it were a trigger. The Triggerfish is an excellent eating fish and chef Dr BBQ Ray Lampe shows how to prepare grilled Triggerfish tacos with a mango salsa.
