Texas Lionfish Control Unit
The TLCU is working to organize opportunities to better control populations of the invasive lionfish in and around the state of Texas. EarthX has provided the TLCU with a forum to recruit and connect with a greater number of individuals that are willing and able to work towards creating a healthier and safer habitat for native marine life.
TLCU educates the public about the threat of lionfish in Texas and conducts internal research in regards to the invasive species. With EarthX helping to initiate participant recruitment, TLCU provides dive training, promotes ecological study, and plans eco-trips for new hunters year round.
