Lionfish Trap

$1,088 of $12,500 goal

Raised by 17 people in 32 months
Maria and I have been removing invasive lionfish ever since we first spotted one in the Caribbean in 2009. We love to SCUBA dive and photograph beautiful marine life. This lionfish invasion is wreaking havoc upon our fragile ecosystems and remains out of control. The development of a lionfish specific trap will greatly aide in their removals and could be a real game changer in this battle.
We have already successfully tested our trap prototypes and now need to develop the gated entry system to target ONLY lionfish and exclude all other marine life. This is where we need your help!
All funds generated from this campaign will be used exclusively toward the development of  our gate. Follow our progress on our website or on FaceBook.
Thank you for any donation you are able to make.
