Get a permit to cull lionfish
Scuba divers, snorkellers and free divers are now able to obtain a permit to spear lionfish anywhere on the Bermuda platform.
Lionfish culling permit courses are now being offered as part of the Bermuda Lionfish Task Force Control Plan and the Ocean Support Foundation in support of the Department of Environmental Protection.
The two-hour course, which costs $20, covers information on lionfish, safe handling and spearing practices and an explanation of how the permit programme works.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will receive a plastic permit tag and a lionfish spearing dive flag. Annual permit renewals will be free of charge, provided the permit holder has reported their lionfish catches or sightings to the Bermuda Lionfish Task Force at www.oceansupport.org.
With a Lionfish Culling Permit you can spear only lionfish anywhere around the Island, including within the one-mile limit and on protected sites, in the fight against the lionfish invasion.
For more information on the courses, e-mail your name, and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-5406.
