If you have ever participated in a reef, beach, or pier cleanup you know the frustration of detangling a fishhook from a mesh bag. Fishhooks are not the only sharp objects found during one of these cleanup events. Broken glass bottles, rusty beer cans, or other rusty metal objects (knives, scissors, fishing poles) all pose a significant hazard to divers and event volunteers. A quick scrape across the leg or other limb could cause serious injury, especially with an out-of-date tetanus shot. Personally, during these events, a ZooKeeper Lionfish Containment Unit is the perfect marine debris collection device. Safely cleanup!
Lionfish spines are sharp enough to penetrate a wetsuit or gloves. The ZooKeeper Lionfish Containment Unit works perfectly to protect the diver from lionfish spine envenomation. It works equally as well protecting the diver from any sharp objects a diver might encounter during a reef, beach, or pier cleanup. The 6” opening of the ZooKeeper Lionfish Containment Unit is large enough to fit any objection one may come across. The funnel insert ensures the debris stays contained inside the unit. The quick drain valve also makes exiting the water a breeze.
