Lionfish Tournament Results & Recap

Sanctuary Friends Foundation hosted its Third Annual Lionfish Tournament over Columbus Day Weekend with great success. The eight teams (five of which brought in fish) caught 369 lionfish off Florida Keys reefs and wrecks even with the windy conditions on the water!

The BIGGEST lionfish caught was 18½ inches! The Smallest was 3½ inches. Team Chase ‘N’ Tail brought in 172 lionfish to take home the top team prize over the two-day tournament.

Following the weigh-in at Captain Hook’s Marina & Dive Center on Sunday, John Mirabella of Castaway Waterfront Restaurant went above and beyond for the lionfish dinner. Not only did the contestants and guests get to try fried lionfish and his National Geographic recipe “Wreck Diver Lionfish,” John also brought out “King of the Jungle” lionfish sushi rolls and another new roll containing tempura lionfish.
The event raised more than $1,500 from raffles at the tasting. The raffle items were generously donated from attractions and dive shops from Tavernier to Key West.
