We will have two information sessions and lion fish collection permit courses on Aug 15th at 11am and on Aug 18th at 7pm at BAMZ (Aquarium- Education room). These sessions are free but you will have to sign up to join in. Email matt@fantaseabermuda if you need more info or you would like to get your LION FISH Permit.
Tournament Sign up forms can be downloaded from www.reefspect.com or collected from the Fantasea Office at # 5 Albouys Point.
Please show your love for Bermuda's Marine Ecosystem by killing and eating this Fish. (sounds wrong doesn't it, but seriously this species can potentially decimate our reefs).
Show some REEFSPECT.
