All divers, fishers, and ocean enthusiasts are encouraged to attend this lionfish workshop from Reef, an active organzation of divers and marine enthusiasts committed to ocean conservation. Funded by a grant through the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Keri Kenning and Lad Akins will be traveling to twenty cities throughout the South East United States to teach lionfish collecting and handling workshops. Workshop topics include background of the invasion, lionfish biology, ecological impacts, current research findings, collecting tools and techniques, market development, and ways to get involved.
Workshops are free of charge and open to the public, but registration is required.
Visit www.reef.org to register.
