Invasive Species


Many may be wondering about my profile picture.  You rarely see eco  

conscious divers packing a spear gun like this one!  This is my deadly lion fish eradication tool!  These devils with scales have invaded our waters and are quickly reproducing while gobbling up all of our local reef fish.

The gun was manufactured by JBL expressly for the Caribbean Lionfish Response team founder Joe Gullie.  It has six barbed prongs (I know overkill) but I have not missed yet and they sure can't get off of the tip! 

If you are interested in purchasing one of these babies, would like more info on the CORE foundation, or would like to become one of our divers, please contact Joe at
