THE 2019 LIONFISH DERBY FISHING TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND IS CANCELLED, BUT THE TASTING IS STILL ON. REEF (Reef Environmental Education Foundation) has cancelled the tournament portion (including the 7/12 captains meeting & the 7/13 fishing tournament ) due to inclement weather.
THE TASTING PORTION OF THE EVENT AT MOTE IN THE WAVE CENTER IS STILL ON! There will be 5 local chefs there serving lionfish inspired cuisine that is sure to be a can't-miss afternoon. This event is sold out.
For additional questions/concerns regarding the derby portion, you can reach out to the REEF main office at 305-852-0030.
