During the last 15 months, the lionfish population in the Bahamas has exploded. Thousands of lionfish now inhabit local waters without explanation. Stuart Coveís is working with a number of researchers at REEF to examine this phenomenon in more detail.

Stuart Coveís Dive Bahamas is pleased to announce a special week-long REEF Research expedition in Nassau , Bahamas . The focus of the week will be to document the presence/absence of lionfish at specific sites near the west end of New Providence Island ( Nassau ), Bahamas . Working as part of a team, the divers will search for and collect previously tagged lionfish, collect and tag new specimens, document abundance of native reef fish at lionfish sites, help collect samples of lionfish for dissection to determine prey and reproduction, and learn about invasive species issues.

Daily morning dives at Stuart Coveís Dive Bahamas will be followed by hands on afternoon dissections, lectures and discussions. Andy Dehart, General Manager of the National Aquarium in Washington DC , Chris Flook, Collector of Specimens for the Bermuda Zoo and Aquarium, and Ned and Ann DeLoach will all bring their perspectives and expertise to the project and be integral parts of the lionfish team.

Divers who wish to participate can sign up now. Space is limited, so donít delay. The project includes hotel accommodations at the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino and five days of two tank morning dives. The price is $999.95 double occupancy (Island View Room).

For more information or to book space, please contact Pam Christman at Stuart Cove ís Dive Bahamas at 800-879-9832 or
