Lion Fish Hunting Specialty

The lionfish on Bonaire

A few years ago the first lionfish was spotted on Bonaire. This beautiful fish is a major threat to aquatic life in the Caribbean. They eat almost everything they encounter, sometimes even up to three times their own weight! Because they don’t have a natural enemy and females lay up to 2 million eggs, the lion fish multiplies quickly.

Bonaire responded adequately to the invasion of lionfish by asking divers to help. After completing the Lionfish Hunting course and only when using the approved spear gun (the ELF), scuba divers are allowed to hunt this uninvited guest.
