Hi <<First Name>>,

Welcome to the last Lionfish University newsletter of 2019. We've got a new site manager, a fantastic DEMA booth coming up, and a radio report from a reef assessment in Antigua. There are also some *secret* projects happening that we'll be announcing soon, so stay tuned...

This is your last chance to do your Christmas shopping with one of our sponsors, so get in quick!

Scott Gonnello of Lionfish Central is now managing our website! Check out the new store, where you can buy spear-tips, Zookeeper parts, and more. Thank you Scott!

The invasion is spreading fast - the newest surveys show lionfish from New York to Venezuela.

You're never too young to save the world

On October 11th Stacy, her brother Courtney, his wife Nica and their 5-year-old son Courtney III cleaned up their local beach in Grand Cayman. Six trash bags and three full Zookeepers later and they were done! Little Courtney had a great time and proved that you're never too young to pitch in and make a difference.

Stacy and Steve are on the air!

On October 17th Stacy, Steve Gittings and Martha Watkins Gilkes went on ZKD Radio in Antigua to report their findings after the reef assessment trip in April.
