Lionfish Roundup & Festival!
Posted on March 31, 2015
Calling all our local divers! If you live in Pensacola or own real estate in Perdido Key, grab your gear and don’t miss the annual Lionfish Roundup & Festival this May!
Hosted by the Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition, this event is not only fun, but also serves a great purpose in limiting the number of Lionfish, an invasive species, in our local waters. The tournament and festival will take place in Pensacola May 14-17, 2015. For those wishing to dive, registration is just $35.00.
The three days of this event include educational, as well as fun, activities. One May 14th, attend the workshop and safety meeting, as these creatures can be venomous. Â The next two days are full of diving fun as the tournament commences! The weigh-in and awards will take place on May 17, 2015.
If you don’t already own a home in the area but would like to participate, consider renting a Gulf Coast condo or vacation home from our friends at Pointe South Vacation Rentals. They are currently offering 15% off Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key rentals when you book online using code LIONFISH.
