1 Extra Spiny Lobster for 10 Lionfish during Florida Sport Season

PORT CANAVERAL, Florida — This year’s Florida Spiny Lobster Sport Season, also known as “Mini-Season,” will have an added twist for divers on Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30, 2015. That’s because divers will be able to keep one extra spiny lobster beyond the recreational bag limit if they catch 10 or more lionfish.

The mini-season gives sports fisherman first dibs at the lobsters before commercial fishing of the giant sea bugs begins the first week of August and continues into March.

For more information on the Spiny Lobster Recreational Mini-Season, and details on how to qualify for the extra spiny lobster, visit the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission website.
