Lionfish - They're Heeerrreee!

On the first day of this year, Joe Marino was diving just outside the Hillsboro Inlet, when he came upon and photographed this small invasive lionfish.

When REEF ( was notified, a seek-and-collect mission was mounted, without success. On that same day, and within ¼ mile, another diver collected a juvenile lionfish. Unfortunately, it appears to be a different fish.

Marine Debris Reporting and Removal Program

Discarded fishing and boating materials (e.g. fishing line, nets, and anchors), plastics (water bottles and bags), household items (chairs) and hurricane related debris (roofing materials) are becoming increasingly more common on southeast Florida reefs. Debris washed by rivers, discarded on beaches, or abandoned by fishers, divers, and boaters can cause damage to sponges and corals, and entangle fish and other reef organisms, resulting in injury or death to these animals. With population growth and human use of southeast Florida reefs on the rise, establishing a program that can minimize the impacts of marine debris is a priority.
