Saturday, May 10, 2014 - 01:00 - 08:00Join us for the PADI Lionfish Specialty Course on Sat May 10th!
The Lionfish invasion in the Northwestern Atlantic and the Caribbean represents one of the most rapid Finfish invasions in history. Lionfish have many negative effects on local fish populations, herbivorous species and crustaceans.
The course involves a half day in the classroom learning essential Lionfish facts, how they were introduced, effects of introduction, lionfish reporting, capturing techniques and much more. The course explains why action is required now to endeavor to control the population and teaches the practical way to safely and humanely capture and euthanize these fish.
Following theory, two dives will be done to put skills into practice to eradicate lionfish from our dive sites and catch Lionfish for dinner!
The specialty counts towards the PADI Master Scuba diver rating. I am excited to teach this new specialty course and help with marine conservation
