    Reef Monitoring welcomes Ocean Pals as a sponsor. Ocean Pals is dedicated to providing environmental education to children through art. Its purpose is to encourage young people to become aware of and share their concerns for the marine environment through poster art. Their messages will be brought to the widest possible audience to create a stronger commitment to protect the environment on which all life on this planet depends.
    Below you can see an example picture of Ocean Pals teaching about conservation.

    Reef Monitoring welcomes the continued support of Aquatic Obsessions in St. Petersburg!
    Aquatic Obessions has been St. Pete's premier dive shop for over 20 years and has been a staple to the community. Bill runs a 1st class operation specializing in Instruction and training, sales, service, fills including helitrox and trimix, and local as well as international drive trips. AO is ONE STOP SHOPPING for all your SCUBA needs.
    AO is spearfishing friendly and is the home base for the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club. AO together with TBSC has been VERY good to Reef Monitoring over the years. The spearfishing community is every bit as passionate about our local reefs as we are and spearfishermen continue to be a valuable resource for us. There is no better example of this partnership than lionfish. We are currently relying heavily on spearfishermen to be the key method of removal and control until our research can provide other means!
    Thank you so much Bill and to everyone at your shop and in your club. We appreciate everything you have done for us!!

    Thank you Suncoast Underwater Club for your donation and continued support. Clubs like yours allow us the opportunity to acquire samples that lead to research so we can see how Lionfish impact or are capable of impacting local reefs.

    Thank you

    A new sponsor for Reef Monitoring this year is Shark Shield.
    For 20 years, the folks at SS have put in the research to bring an effective and safe product to market that protects you from sharks without hurting them. I know several members of this forum have used it and like it.

    Thanks to their generosity, there WILL be a Shark Shield on the prize table.

    Thank you so much Amanda!!

    Thank you E Sea Rider for your donation. Your seats always make rough seas more comfortable. Simply put, your bean bag seats are AWESOME. Even when used on shore they are the most durable and comfortable bean bag chairs out on the market.

    I've slept on them in the Middle Grounds, at the dock, in my living room....

    9 out of 10 chiropractors surveyed agree that E-Sea Rider bags are bad for their business!

    E-Sea Rider has long been a HUGE sponsor of events in the fishing and diving community. They give a ton back to the community and we are thankful they are continuing their sponsorship with us. Pat and Bridget have graciously put two bean bag chairs on the prize table.

    Thank you Pat Bennett

    Thank you Lionfish Striker for donating and joining us at the event. Safety is ALWAYS rule #1 when it comes to diving, and your products sure help in keeping those spear tips in check. Brian will be joining us at the event for demonstrations and have extra product on hand. Be sure to go visit his booth.

    Thank you Brian James

    Thank you ZooKeeper for contributing to help our event, and to helping to drive the cause of informing the public of this invasive problem. It's the development of tools like yours that help to keep us safe while we do our part in trying to collect and learn about Lionfish, and hopefully influence the progression of this invasion.

    Thank you Allie.

    Thank you Blue Water Life for giving your time to attend our events, in fact most every event having to do with SCUBA in the area and providing such excellent photo coverage of the events. Your mastery of the art shows in your pictures. Looking forward to seeing all the photograph and video entries at the event.

    Thank you Suncoast Dive-Center for your donation. Chad and his crew are very helpful and easy to talk with when it comes to diving and spearfishing. They offer a full line up of classes and have quite a selection of gear. The dry bags donated will definitely help out someone's gear.

    Thank you Chad Campbell.
