Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn Launches Monthly Lionfish Removal Trips to Klein Bonaire

As most visiting divers to Bonaire already know, a battle against the highly invasive Pacific Lionfish has been waged for several years now.  Bonaire’s lionfish hunters have done an excellent job of removing these predatory fish from the waters.  Klein Bonaire, with only boat access, has proved to be more difficult, and so Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn has just launched monthly lionfish removal boat dives to help alleviate this problem on Klein Bonaire’s reefs.

These special removal dives are for certified lionfish hunters only (each hunter may bring one “spotter” as well)and will take place on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 AM. The divers need to provide their own tanks.

Please note that only Bonaire residents with their own E.L.F. (Eliminate LionFish) from STINAPA may join the hunt.  Cost to cover expenses is $10.00 per person, and there is a 6 person minimum and a 12-person maximum for each trip.  It’s the desire of the crew at Carib Inn that these efforts help to keep Bonaire’s reefs healthy by eliminating as many lionfish as possible.

Upcoming lionfish removal dives are Saturday, November 7th, 2015 at 9:30 AM and Saturday, December 5th, 2015 at 9:30 AM.

Email info@caribinn.com to reserve space.  Dates are also posted on their web site at www.caribinn.com.  And lionfish on Bonaire are never wasted, so be sure to check out Lionfish Recipes for after the dive!  (Source:  Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn)
