Making Delicious Dishes From Destructive Fishes

The Sebastian Lionfish Fest is this years’ event to attend! After the fishing tournament, the cook-off competition will commence. Based on community education, guests will learn about the lionfish invasion, how to prepare these fish safely, and different ways to help protect our coastal ecosystems from their harmful biological impacts. All attendees will be able to try multiple lionfish dishes prepared by competing local restaurants and vote for their favorite.
