The removal and awareness are key factors to this event. These fish reproduce rapidly and their diet consists of juvenile grouper, snapper, lobster and shrimp. Patrick Green at Panama City Diving said,”The mixed blessing with these invasive Lionfish is that they have venomous spines protecting its delicious meat. We expect to bring thousands of these guys to the dock in this years tournament, which should be fun for the brave contestants and the spectators too!”
Join us, and follow along! Last year they were able to remove over 700 Lionfish from our local waters. They aim for even more this year!
