Lobster with a Side of Lionfish

As an incentive for Florida lobster divers to help cull the invasive lionfish population in our state waters, the FWC, in its June meeting, put in place an exciting opportunity that will launch this summer. Divers who harvest ten or more lionfish per day during the annual two-day sport lobster season (July 29 & 30 this year) will be permitted to harvest an additional legal spiny lobster per day (i.e., one more than the legal bag limit.) In addition, participants can take a photo of their lobster/lionfish catch and post it to Facebook.com/LionfishReefRangers to get a “Be the Predator” T-shirt. As an added incentive, each photo entrant will be entered into a drawing to win a life-time saltwater fishing license. For a complete description of the program, rules and regulations, as well as links to other information about Florida’s spiny lobster harvests, go here.
