Welcome To Lionfish.info
Our Primary Feature
Our goal is to provide you with the most comprehensive and current supply of information & facts available on the invasive lionfish.
Along with information, our primary feature is our interactive lionfish tracking map which is designed to assist people and groups around the affected area by providing a visual map of the culled and spotted lionfish. When people see an invasive lionfish they can record the position in order for a diver to come back later and remove the fish. We hope that with time this map will be used to show just how extensive the problem has become and which areas are doing the most to combat the problem.
Lionfish.info was developed as a tool to combat the spread of the invasive lionfish. Native to the Indo-Pacific region and with no natural predators in the Atlantic, the lionfish has been spreading at an explosive rate and displacing the native marine species. Right now, divers are the best defense against this spreading disaster.
While many lionfish related groups have been focused on getting grant money and studying the problem, there has still been a void in actual solutions. It came to our attention that there was a need for a tracking map for people around the affected area to document their culls and for non-hunters to report their lionfish sightings so that others can remove the lionfish.
We decided to build that map at our own expense and give it to everybody to use. For FREE, because we need solutions not more talk.
