Continue your immersion into marine exploration in Museum Park with REEF’s 2018 Lionfish Derby Summer Series kickoff event, presented by Whole Foods. See the results of a team competition with prizes for the largest lionfish, most lionfish, and even smallest lionfish, while interacting with local organizations, including our very own MUVE (Museum Volunteers for the Environment), to learn more about what you can do to help conserve our coastlines and oceans. Conservation efforts include the capture of lionfish, an invasive species that threatens our native fish populations and the health of our reefs. The derby will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are interested in registering a team for the derby click here (Frost members receive a 10% discount).

A final schedule of the day’s events is coming soon. Select experiences of the event are weather permitting, but a majority will occur rain or shine including the derby.

Supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA).

Additional support for the derby is provided by Fish Florida.
