Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission sent this bulletin at 09/07/2017 09:43 AM EDT

The announcement of the winners of the 2017 Lionfish Challenge has been postponed due to Hurricane Irma. The winners were originally slated to be crowned Sept. 9 at the Lionfish Safari in St. Petersburg, but the event has also been postponed to a later date.

The Lionfish Challenge, a removal incentive program, started on Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day May 20 (first Saturday after Motherís Day annually) and ran through Sept. 4.
