Default Alabama Lionfish

I am an old guy who is getting back into diving. We will be diving in Alabama waters and I just wondered what the lionfish situation is around this area? Thanks

If you're diving, you'll see lion fish. Take a lion tamer, or other small pole spear, and a container that will protect you from your catch, and load up. Have fun.

There are lots of them, on every reef.
They are great to eat.
Do your homework if you are going to harvest them.

I only about them in Florida, and what has been going on over hear.
They are classified as a Predator, not a fish.
No fishing license needed, no limit.
One can get a free permit to sell them.
The average going going price is $5.

Did I say they are great to Eat!!!

Thanks for the replies. I will be going out of Orange Beach. My first dive I will probably take my boat down the beach to just off Bahama Bob's and see if the Whiskey wreck is still there.

Very doubtful you will find any inshore generally you don't start seeing them thick until around 80 feet Plus

I am too old to do the 80 plus ft dives so I will just cruise around shallow and see if any pop up.
