The workshops consist of a morning classroom portion covering the background of the invasion, lionfish biology and ecology, impacts, current research findings, and hands-on lessons in how to safely collect and handle lionfish using hand nets, pole spears and ZooKeeper Lionfish Containment Units. Participants who complete the classroom session will have the opportunity to obtain a permit to collect lionfish using hand nets in Sanctuary Preservation Areas (SPAs) within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Following the classroom session, divers and snorkelers can join an accompanying boat charter to practice the collection and handling techniques.
