I want to get involved with Lionfish Collecting & Handling Workshops.

Rob Lionfish

Lionfish removals help control the invasion. Learn how to safely collect and handle lionfish today!

REEF conducts FREE Lionfish Collection and Handling Workshops!

Each workshop will include an in-classroom background on the invasion, lionfish biology, ecological impacts, current research, collecting and handling techniques, and much more! Once wrapping up on land, we will head out to the water and put our skills to work during a two-tank dive charter. The workshop and dives are free thanks to generous donation from the Dive shops, and REEF will provide lionfish collecting gear, but you will need to bring your own SCUBA gear or organize a rental through the dive shop. Please contact the shop directly prior to the workshop if you need rental gear. *Due to the advanced nature of the lionfish collection dives an advanced dive certification and 30 dives minimum are required for dive participants.
