Caye Caulker 3rd Annual Lionfish Derby competition shows a decrease in the invasive species

Starting at 7AM, boats headed out to sea fully equipped with everything they needed to catch as many lionfish as they could and hopefully claim one of the fabulous prizes the tournament had to offer. After approximately eight hours at sea, teams started to arrive back to the island around 3PM with their ice boxes full of lionfish, ready to weigh and count. The weighing station saw a large group of spectators gathered to view the huge amounts of fish caught. The size of lionfish ranged from one and a half inches up to 11 inches. A total of 597 lionfish were caught during the tournament.

At the end of the day when all the catches had been counted and weighed, the respective winners were announced. The award for “most lionfish caught through scuba diving” went to San Pedro’s Sagebrush Team, who caught a total of 121 lionfish. The win for the “most lionfish caught via free diving” was French Angel, who caught a total of 115 lionfish. The prize for the “smallest lionfish” went to Caye to Happiness for catching a fish of only one and a half inches in size, while, the prize for the “largest lionfish” went to Scuba Sensation, for an 11-inch fish. Majority of the teams decided to donate all of their catch to Barrier Reef Sports Bar & Grill to serve up.

The Caye Caulker Humane Society is thrilled and grateful to be the recipient of $871 raised by the Barrier Reef Sports Bar & Grill's 2018 Lion Fish Derby! Thanks to the Sports Bar owners and staff as well as Lynne Couch-Harris and Susan Newhouse for all of their hard work on the fun and successful event. Also to everyone who ate a lion fish, bought a raffle ticket, bought and shirt or donated a prize. And congratulations to derby participants and especially winners, who helped bring down the population of the invasive species.

The money will go directly, and 100% to medications and supplies for keeping the island dogs and cats healthy.
