Becoming King of the Lionfish to Save the Ocean

John McCain (not that one) is a professional diver who cares deeply about the health of the ocean. This year, he’s channeling his love for the aquatic world into a fishing competition. The rules? Catch as many lionfish as you can!

A contradiction? Hardly. McCain will be competing to catch lionfish, an invasive species wreaking havoc in the Atlantic Ocean. Winning this competition means helping to restore balance to the reef.
