Lion Hunter

Wednesday I took a PADI Lion Fish Eradication course. It consisted of a pool dive, some class room training, then two open water dives to hunt the fish.

Lion fish are not native to the Atlantic and have no enemies. They are a serious threat to the local fish population and the reefs.

We were instructed the proper protocol of using the spear gun and what to do to the lion fish once speared.

I ended up taking 6 shots and killing 4.
