REEF will be conducting a series of completely FREE Lionfish Collection and Handling Workshops followed by collection dives! At the workshop, you will learn how to safely collect and handle lionfish, and then we will go out as a class to practice your skills on a lionfish removal dive. Practice alongside professionals so you can help control the lionfish invasion every time you dive!
Experienced and novice lionfish collectors are encouraged to attend. The workshops will also include background of the invasion, biology/ecology of lionfish, impacts, and current research findings. Both the workshop and the dive are FREE, but workshop attendance is required to participate in the dive. Registration is required. Don't miss out on the fun, sign up today!
