Default Chevron reef lionfish harvest videos

Here are videos of a day of diving on the Chevron earlier this year. This reef was infested with lionfish. The last two videos are very long, so you may need popcorn if you decide to watch them through.

You will see a turtle about 24 minutes into the dive #1 video.

Thanks for sharing. Glad you pulled off some public service killing lion fish, thanks again. Can't watch them yet due to SAT Connection not allowing but will upon my return in a few days. Oh yea, and I'll be getting the popcorn ready too, some of my favs.

Outstanding and Thanks for this service.. I wish more divers had the dedication you have for protecting our reef system,
I see too many that just run up on a spot we're fishing with no respect what so ever and roll off to Shoot something Big

Good question.

I don't leave speared lionfish on-site for several reasons:
  • I'm usually in the water for a while. Dead fish attract sharks.
  • We eat some lionfish and give some away.
  • We donate lionfish to researchers.
  • Lionfish sometimes recover from a spear wound.
