Catch some lionfish and party with Force-E Scuba Centers

Every year FWC selects a day that everyone across the state comes together to hunt lionfish and remove them from our reefs and wrecks. Lionfish are invasive to Florida and they can really disrupt the ecosystem on the reefs, so its encouraged for divers to catch them. Plus they are good to eat!!! This year on May 20th you can be a part of this statewide dive. All you need is your spear, your hunting skills, and most importantly your appetite. Who knew a species could be so beautiful, venomous, and tasty?
