FWC Lionfish Seminar and
Lionfish Hunting Excursion
April 20th & 21st

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is sponsoring a trip to promote Invasive Lionfish awareness and efforts to keep the reefs clean.

Divers will have the benefit of a seminar before-hand that focuses on lionfish, their invasion, FWC control programs, and harvest methods. They will have a table full of lionfish informational materials, promo items and goodies, and a lionfish to demonstrate handling and fillet demonstration.
This is going to be a very informational seminar and a chance to mingle and share stories with other divers that share an interest in cleaning up our reefs!

The dive will take place Friday morning at 8 AM. It is recommended that divers bring their own polespear and liofish containment unit - however FWC will have 4 sets of ZooKeepers and Neritic polespears to use but divers will have to share the equipment.
All of our registered divers will receive a %10 discount on lionfish equipment.

The seminar will be Thursday evening, April 20th from 6PM to 7PM
The dive will be Friday morning, April 21st at 8AM

*** FWC is generous enough to sponsor this event - which means our divers will get on board for just $10 plus rentals!!! ***
All they ask is to keep the collected lionfish for research!!

Deerfield Beach Pier Cleanup 2017
Saturday, June 17th
8AM Registration
9AM - 12PM Cleanup and Dive!!

Dixie Divers with help of City of Deerfield Beach has arranged to have Deerfield Beach Pier closed on June 17th 2017 from 9:00am until 12:00pm so that divers can maneuver among the pilings with safety. Volunteers are needed to dive the pier and for the land duties such as pulling up the buckets the divers will fill with mono-filament line and lead sinkers and to co-ordinate the surface onlookers. All volunteers can keep as many lead sinkers as they like or you can help by cleaning the beach or by just talking about diving and our local environment. Mono-filament line is a hazard to many sea creatures especially sea turtles and birds who get wrapped up and cannot free themselves. These poor creatures eventuallystarve so please join us and help clean our local area of this danger to our underwater friends. This is the 6th annual Reef Sweep presented by Dixie Divers. City of Deerfield Beach will keep records of the trash weights and different composition. Dixie Divers will be video taping the divers and volunteers who participate for a DVD that will be given to City of Deerfield Beach and Broward County for their environmental education programs. Dixie Divers has received a recognition for excellence from 2010 PADI Americas for Project Aware Marine Environmental Award. The Pier dive is one of the most fun for local divers because of the variety of creatures and the abundance of life there. Normally closed to divers because of fishing this once a year treat lets us help the environment and dive a forbidden spot all at the same time.

Procedure for All Volunteer (Divers, Snorkelers and helpers out of water)

-Unload in front of the pier, anyone who wants to park in the pier parking lot will have to pay.
- Park Free at Main Parking Lot. (the one on the side of Fire Station)
