The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) recently approved a new opportunity to boost and encourage divers to harvest 10 of the invasive lionfish species by allowing them to take one extra spiny lobster each day during the two-day sport season of lobster mini season that is held on July 29-30, 2015.

“The FWC operates in a culture of innovation. Opportunities like this are a great way to get divers who are already in the water accustomed to removing lionfish,” said…

Palmer was joined on his team by Darren Clarke, Paul Lawrie and Bill Rogers.
