The purpose of this event is to continue reduce numbers of the invasive Lionfish (Pterois spp) and encourage their future hunting to help protect our fisheries and native fauna. It further seeks to promote their enhanced use as a sustainable food source and promote their use by local restaurants. A serious aim, but with some fun/ prizes attached within the limits of current restrictions!
