Join Islamorada Dive Center and REEF for their Saturday lionfish handling and collection workshop. This single day workshop collects and removes as many lionfish as possible. Divers collect lionfish by netting or spearing while SCUBA diving. The morning of the workshop, participants attend a mandatory training class at REEF’s Key Largo headquarters. This presentation includes lionfish biology, ecology, impacts, collecting and handling tools and techniques. Then it’s off to IDC for a fun day of lionfish harvesting.
