Lionfish in Belize
What started as local population of lionfish in Florida quickly spread throughout the Caribbean and Central America coastline. The Lionfish invasion of Belize Coastline has promoted business and as well as entire communities forming solutions to protect the eco-system.
Join our Trip here at Placencia Wildside Adventures, for a combination Scuba Diving and hunting Lionfish. This is just one of the ways we are fighting back in Belize.
Hunting Lionfish in Belize
Are you a Certified Diver? Would you like to do something different while helping the reef? Let’s go hunt lionfish!
The lionfish is an invasive, aggressive species of fish that was accidentally set loose in the Caribbean. They breed fast and feed voraciously, and we need to control their population.
Choose one, two or three dives for the day, head out to some of the less traffic dive sites and hunt! Let's see if we can beat the record for "the most catch of the day". Help the reef while enjoying a great dive.
Our dive guides will show you how to use our spears, and take the fishes off. You won't have to worry about getting poked with the spines, which are very painful.
All you gotta do is spear em!!!
