There may be COVID and hurricane season to deal with, but that doesn’t stop invasive lionfish from breeding, so the Cayman United Lionfish League is organising a cull tournament this weekend.
Registration for the event will be held at Silverside Restaurant & Rum Bar (above Eden Rock Diving Center) from 5-8pm on Thursday, 8 Oct., with weigh-ins at the same location from 4-6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
There is $3,200 in cash prizes up for grabs, covering 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the following categories:
- Most lionfish
- Most overall weight
- Biggest lionfish
- Smallest lionfish
There has to be a minimum of two people and a maximum of eight in each registered team, with at least one licensed lionfish culler per team.
All lionfish must be de-spined when brought to the weighing/measuring station, as there will be no cleaning area on-site.
The registration fee is $10 per person.
Head along and enjoy free lionfish samples prepared and served by Silverside on each weigh-in night, and wash them down with drinks on special.
