This year’s annual lionfish tournament will be huge, with over $40,000 pesos in prizes at stake.  Scheduled for next Sunday morning, August 25th, the tournament has been divided into professional and amateur categories.  This is the 5th year of this popular event, and is a positive way to encourage the eradication of this invasive species.  During the competition, non-participants will have a chance to learn more about lionfish as local restaurants will be preparing a variety of lionfish tastings, and there will also be children’s activities, and an informational booth.   For more information, or to register, contact the Cozumel National Marine Park, “Arrecifes de Cozumel.”
