DIVERS! Just one more call for help, I promise. :) For those of you diving the St. Pete Open Spearfishing Tournament, please keep an eye out for Hogfish!! I need a few samples from the SOUTH Gulf (<27° North) or BAYS. I would greatly appreciate any carcasses you could donate for my master's research. Feel free to keep your fillets - I just need the rest. For each Hogfish carcass donated, you will be entered in a drawing for a beautiful Hogfish print from Blue Water Life! I will be at the weigh-in with these forms in-person, so you don't have to print them out.
Thanks so much for everyone's continued support with this project!! Please repost if possible. :) Thank you to Mike Miller and Heidi Thoricht for your support!

First encounter with my favorite fish!
Hogfish有長長的嘴吻，中文是豬隆頭魚，一直覺得他們可愛，follow spearfishing 的哀居常常會看到他們被打可是嘴巴笑得開心的樣子。
How long did it take you to spot the fish? Good eyesight under water and the ability to spot fish are incredibly important. I have 20/25 vision but still use a prescription mask from @flfreedivers they take my existing mask or one off the shelf (I use a Cressi Nano) and put the prescription lens in it. Makes a HUGE difference. If you hate wearing contacts get it done.

Congratulations to Gift Mitrananda and Ricky Benvenuti on the successful defense of their theses this past week. Ricky's M.P.S. project focused on the care and husbandry of hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus) in our tanks @umiamirsmas and Gift's M.S. thesis was a nutritional trial conducted @aqquuaculture using the hybrid grouper grown there (Epinephelus lanceolatus x E. fuscoguttatus). #gift#grouper#ricky#hogfish#miami#seafood#defense#hybrid#spawn#nutrition#graduate
Full video is up on my YouTube channel✌🏾.. Truly a crazy experience going on trips like these. Been super busy this year and plan on more trips like these soon... Link is in my bio, check it out. @spearfishing_reviews @spearchannel
A species of large wrasse native to the Atlantic ocean, particularly around reefs.
They are vulnerable due to the fact that they are another popular fishing target.
I rate this weirdo a 7/10
