Lionfish Tournament & Tasting – August 25
Cozumel will host a lionfish tournament on August 25th. Both professional and amateur spearfishers can compete for cash and other prizes. Hunting of lionfish is advocated here because the non-native predators are threatening our reef system and marine life. There will be a reception at noon followed by children’s activities and then a lionfish tasting at 2pm. Activities will take place at the Punta Langosta International Pier.
