The devastation the lionfish creates has not stopped or improved. They are more of a threat than ever before. Scientists have found 150 different species of native fish that they eat from our reefs, shoals and mangrove nurseries. They have also discovered that the females do not lay eggs every seven days as thought but every four days instead. There are 30,000 eggs released every 4 days or 2,000,000 eggs per female in a year's time. They are still not recognized as a predator by the fish they eat nor are they recognized as prey by potential predators. Mankind is their only predator. Now is the time to go out for them again.

This event is geared to educating the public about the impact of the Lionfish here in The Bahamas waters. There will be food and drinks on sale as well as a competition to see who can catch the most and the biggest Lionfish.
