interesting ... I enjoy watching lionfish in aquariums. I didn't realize they were so abundant...not sure introducing other species to help eat them is wise. I guess if people eat them, maybe allow a certain number to be caught.

It's doesn't seem as if it's much of sport fish but something must be done about invasive species.
