Re: Spearing Lionfish in the Keys?

We participate in all of the local lionfish derby and I'm a very active member of REEF and the dive community. The Park doesn't give out permits to spear lionfish, neither does the FK Marine Sanctuary unless it is a sanctioned event, like a lionfish derby. And then the ONLY things you can take are lionfish. The rules for Lionfish are the same as they are for spearing and collecting up and down the Keys. I guess the belief is that if they allowed spearing of lionfish everywhere too many asshats would spear everything that moved and enforcement would become even tougher than it is.
