Lionfish Cook Off

Learn, Taste, Vote!

Following the fishing tourney, the lionfish cook-off will commence. Based on education, local organizations concerned about protecting and conserving coastal resources will be teaching guests about the lionfish invasion, how to prepare fish safely at home, and how they can help protect our coastal ecosystems from the harmful impacts of lionfish. As part of the cook-off competition all attendees will get a scoring card allowing them to go around to all the competing local restaurants, try the prepared lionfish dish, and vote for their favorite.
