Are you a lionfish hunting friendly dive center or private divemaster that offers a lionfish-specific education program and will take clients to hunt non-native invasive lionfish? Do you know of a scuba diving center that should be on this list? Send us an email here with the name of the dive shop, center or service, location (city, state and country) and a URL to either the business’ Facebook page or website (preferably a link to a page that mentions lionfish hunting) for possible inclusion on this page.

Lionfish Hunting Equipment

We do our best to complete a bit of research on each dive center before adding them to this page. If we cannot verify through their website, social media pages, review sites, photos, etc. that they hunt lionfish or promote lionfish invasion awareness, then we usually will not include them here.
