About Lisa Mongy
Lisa Mongelia is the Executive Director at the History of Diving Museum located in the beautiful Florida Keys. She removed her first lionfish from South Florida in 2009 and traveled to Bonaire to report on the growing Caribbean problem in 2010. Since then, Lisa has helped cull the local waters of this invasive intruder and totally enjoys turning her catch into a scrumptious feast
What do you like about lionfish hunting?
We must protect our reefs and ecosystems! The introduction of lionfish has created a grave imbalance in the predator/prey food chain. I get great satisfaction removing the gluttonous eating machines from the sea so that young juvenile fish and crustations have an opportunity to grow, reproduce and repopulate their various habitats from the shallow waters to the deep reefs.
What do you like about the lionfish community?
The Lionfish community is a wonderful blend of people from all walks of life coming together with a common goal to help the marine environment.
You can make a difference! You don’t have to get wet to help. Divers and land-lovers can spread the word, build awareness. buy lionfish products.
DON’T BUY EXOTIC FISH, BUGS OR ANIMALS.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THEM, DON’T RELEASE THEM INTO THE WILD.
