Deployment of The Dome, the experimental Lionfish Trap designed to be monitored by an underwater webcam - hopefully coming soon!
The Bermuda Lionfish Task Force presents Lionfish Science! Dr. Corey Eddy answers the community's most Frequently Asked Questions, and shares some scientific insights from his PhD dissertation on lionfish in Bermuda! Watch in HD! Produced by Adrian Kawaley-Lathan (ROCKFIRE PRODUCTIONS) with Post-Production by Crimson Multimedia Bermuda.
Lionfish hunting robots are being tested right here in Bermuda which may provide a breakthrough in the lionfish crisis! Watch this video for a sneak peek of what's to come with Robots in Service of the Environment http://www.robotsise.com
Lionfish are both edible and delicious, and thanks to the Fall Safari Lionfish Tournament hosted by Guardians of the Reef, there were plenty of lionfish to sample! Host Rachel Sawden goes to Harbourfront Restaurant to try lionfish for herself, and see firsthand the preparation and cooking of two incredible lionfish dishes. We've got to eat 'em to beat 'em!
The Bermuda Department of Fisheries has been working alongside local fishermen to deploy experimental traps to capture lionfish. These traps could prove essential to capturing lionfish at depths unsafe for recreational divers. In this episode we join Dr. Joanna Pitt, and Paul Van Pelt, with fisherman David "Bounce" Barnes as they retrieve the first set of traps and invaluable data.
How do you fight the lionfish crisis at 200 feet beneath the sea? Coral Ecologist Dr. Gretchen Goodbody-Gringley of the BIOS-Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences and Ocean Support Foundation takes the battle to them using a Rebreather in this episode brought to you by the Bermuda Lionfish Task Force! Produced by Adrian Kawaley-Lathan (ROCKFIRE PRODUCTIONS) with Post-Production by Crimson Multimedia Bermuda.
Join the Bermuda Lionfish Taskforce as host Jessica Meredith takes us on an adventure with Bermudian divers to teach the basic do's and don't of hunting lionfish!
The lionfish has always been a relentless predator. When it lived only in the Indo-Pacific, its ferocity and aggression were contained. But since the species has expanded to the Atlantic, its overpopulation is threatening fellow aquatic creatures. So scientists are developing a robot to hunt the predator, thinking that killing mass numbers of lionfish may be the only way to combat the problem.
Lionfish are invasive to the Atlantic Ocean and their voracious appetites are upsetting coral reef ecosystems. A new non-profit company wants to restore the balance by building a robot to zap and harvest these predators before its too late.
At the 6th Annual Groundswell Lionfish Tournament, a record number of participants hit the waters to help keep our reefs safe from the invading species. Crowds packed into the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences to witness the catch, learn about the dangerous breed, and enjoy a lionfish cookout!
Lionfish have become the poster animal for invasive species, and they fit the definition perfectly; they were introduced by humans to the Atlantic Ocean, where they do not belong and could potentially cause significant environmental harm, possibly decimating entire ecosystems. Naturally found in the Indo-Pacific, they were first reported off the Florida coast in the 1980s, and in less than 30 years spread throughout the entire northwestern Atlantic.
Bermuda Ocean Explorers holds monthly 'Diver Invasions' to clean debris, cull lionfish, and get people into and enjoying our ocean ecosystems. While the water conditions weren't great this weekend, the sun was shining and a team of Lionfish Hunters decided to make the long haul from MidOcean Club Beach to John Smith's Bay - the perfect opportunity for me to grab some footage and test out my new production plans to showcase future events and the lionfish hunting community in Bermuda.
