We recently published our video story of a lionfish control team that was sent offshore during the Northeast Florida Lionfish Blast Tournament. The divers on this trip collected over 200 lionfish with both spear and live capture techniques. Check out the story below:
Below from the TISIRI Youtube description:
During the 2014 Northeast Florida Lionfish Blast Tournament TISIRI sent out a lionfish control team to capture invasive lionfish with sling spears and a live capture technique. The team successfully brought in over 200 lionfish. The lionfish were cleaned and turned into tasty lionfish ceviche. The live caught lionfish were provided to both Jacksonville University and University of North Florida were they are currently living in research display aquariums.
