Firstly, what is a Lionfish derby?
Well, it’s a competition to collect and euthanize as many lionfish as possible. Divers attend a required kickoff briefing. In the briefing, you’ll learn the derby rules, biology, effects on our reefs and reef fishes, hunting and handling techniques. Not all derbies are the same; however, awards for the most lionfish, largest, smallest, and raffle awards are up for winning.
