The tournament will take place this Saturday 10th of December with participants competing to hunt as many lion fish in the area as possible. There will be prizes in a number of different categories. And after a day of hunting, all of the participants will get together with other members of the community to eat the catch and promote the fish’s consumption!
This lion fish tournament is aimed at stopping the threat of the spread of invasive lion fish species here in the Caribbean and to prevent the loss of biodiversity that accompanies their presence in an area.
