Florida recreational divers have a little over three weeks left to cash in on rewards ranging from $500 to $5,000 for harvesting FWC-tagged lionfish.

The statewide Lionfish Challenge began on Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day (May 19, 2018) and runs through Labor Day (Sept. 3, 2018). FWC tagged lionfish with external dart tags at 50 randomly-selected non-disclosed artificial reef sites between the depths of 80’ and 120’.

To participate, you must complete a registration form, and find and harvest an FWC-tagged lionfish, then submit a clear photo of the lionfish and tag including documentation of the harvester name, tag ID#, GPS coordinates of harvest location and date harvested to Lionfish@MyFWC.com.

Cash rewards ranging from $500 to $5,000 will be rewarded to the first participant to harvest and submit an FWC-tagged lionfish from each individual reef location. They will also receive a customized Engel Cooler, a GoPro camera, or a Dive Rite regulator set.

So far in our area, there has been one submission from Martin County and NO submissions from Palm Beach County.
