    Apply Now for Lionfish Invitationals

    The Lionfish Invitational is Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary's answer to lionfish derbies held in more accessible reef areas. Each trip fills a boat with people looking to dive the sanctuary and remove invasive lionfish. But, that's not all. Divers are also collecting scientific data to help us learn more about the impacts of the invasion.

    Applications for the 2018 Lionfish Invitational cruises are now open. Cruises will take place on the MV Fling June 24-28 and August 26-30, in partnership with Ripley's Aquarium of Canada and Texas Lionfish Control Unit. Applications can be downloaded from our Lionfish Invitational page and are due by March 31, 2018. Apply now if you would like to participate.

    Website Highlight
    Why are we so interested in ridding the sanctuary of lionfish? These fish, native to the Pacific, have no natural predators here, eat everything in sight, and reproduce at an alarming rate. We can't eliminate them, but mass removals have proven effective in controlling them. Learn more...
