Friday 09 March 2018, 12:00pm - 01:00pm
Contact 772-429-6266

Come hear about the future of trapping invasive lionfish from Team Frapper, who are at the forefront of creating lionfish traps that use facial recognition software. Most experts in this field agree that lionfish trapping will be the next big development, especially if a “Lionfish-Specific Trap” is successfully produced.

Team Frapper is working on just such a project. Team Frapper have the collaboration of the United States Geological Society and Florida Institute of Technology, the support and encouragement of the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and encouragement by Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and Cayman Islands Department of Environment to start testing in their waters. This will be a discussion of the cutting-edge methods designed and developed by Team Frapper, led by Bob and Maria Hickerson. You don't want to miss this one!
