Default Free Interactive Reef Site Map

Some time ago we created an interactive map of reefs sites to coordinate the efforts of lionfish hunters. This map can be used by any fishermen to locate fishing spots.

FWC and Alabama DCNR notify us whenever new public reefs become available. So the data is always up-to-date.

No need to log-in. Just zoom-in until you find the reef that you are looking for, then click on the reef marker to see its GPS location.

The site is called "Lionfish Map": http://lionfishmap.org/Map.php

Be safe and hope you catch a big one!

They might want to recheck the depth of the Ozark.
Ozark

Lionfish: 50
Depth: 180'
GPS: 29 55.101 N 86 34.947 W

I have fished the Ozark, it's in deeper water, unless they've moved it.

As per Wikipedia: The wreck currently lies upright and intact in approximately 330 feet of water, 28 to 30 miles due south of Destin, Florida.

How many folks are going to dive @ 330' to look for lion fish?

Thanks! Looks like an error in the FWC reef list. I corrected the Ozark's depth in our database and sent a note to FWC.

We plan to dive the Ozark once a year to check for lionfish. I suspect that it has a bunch on it, so we will not be able to clean it off. However, our observations and video may be useful to researchers.

Any idea why the map page will not load? Is it still available?
