WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP WITH THE LIONFISH INVASION??

EDUCATE YOURSELF on the invasive lionfish and the devastating effects they are having on our reef! Then, help educate others!

 

ReefCI recently started a community outreach program in local primary schools. The main focus is to educate the children about this fish and its long term effects on the already fragile marine ecosystem! Get them young we say!

 

BOOK A LIONFISH TRIP: ReefCI operates all year, with the exception of October. This means that you can learn to spear lionfish any week you visit ReefCI. If you want to totally immerse yourself in everything lionfish then visit in July when we are running our next “Lionfish Special”.

 

Join our LIONFISH WEEK in July!
