The health and safety of the Floridians and visitors we serve are a top priority for us.
As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities and after careful consideration, the May 16 & 17 Lionfish Removal and Awareness Festival has been postponed.
The Lionfish Challenge rewards harvesters with prizes for their lionfish removals. This year, participants who submitted the largest and smallest lionfish were eligible to receive up to $3,000 in cash prizes thanks to support from sponsors: American Sportfishing Association, Yamaha Motor Company, Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and National Marine Manufacturers Association. Thanks to these and the Lionfish Challenge Raffle sponsors including Florida Underwater Sports, Toothless Life, Lionator Pole Spears, Neritic Diving, Stream2Sea, ZooKeeper and Customatic Optics. The Lionfish Challenge could not be possible without your help.
