The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourage people to remove lionfish from Florida waters to help limit negative impacts to native marine life and ecosystems. Lionfish can be speared, caught in handheld nets or caught on hook and line. There is no recreational or commercial bag limit. They are extremely tasty, too!
