Today is the first day of the lionfish bash. This is a month long contest for spearfishermen to shoot as many lionfish as possible. Scientist studying these fish will be able to gather a lot of data from the contest's catch. If you see a boat on your favorite spot with a dive flag up just know that they are wiping out as many lionfish that they can and your spot will be immensely healthier for their effort. The contest runs from 03-28 until 04-28. Good luck all.
