oldernell: I have read that they are good eating. Which means it will cost about as much as lobster as soon as the word gets out.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: God damn invasives. I'm pretty sure we've got a snakehead in the pond at my apartment complex. I've been trying to snap a photo of it but no luck yet.

Saborlas: Snoop changed his name AGAIN?!
rugmannm: I have scuba dived since 2005. At that time I never saw a Lionfish. On a recent trip to Roatan they told me that they spotted their first one a couple of years ago, and now we saw them everywhere. A researcher there told me they have been spotted as deep as 800 feet, so hunting them in not likely to wipe them out. Apparently they have no natural predators in the Caribbean. The divemaster was trying to teach the local eels to eat them (spear one and feed it to an eel he knew lived nearby). It is very discouraging to see a species this destructive thriving to this extent.
Cataholic: There's some talk that the jewfish might be in the process of developing a taste for them. Unless something like that happens, there's not much we can do but watch.

poe_zlaw: ok... why is it called a jewfish?
Deveyn: The best way to wipe out a species is to tell people it tastes good.I've eaten these fish quite a few times and they are definitely worth the minimal effort it takes to catch one.
halB: Let's point the finger at the one thing that has caused the spread of invasives like lionfish and pythons in the everglades: These stupid licensing laws. Humans are great at causing a species to go extinct. When Pythagator (look it up) popped up in the news, me and a dozen friends woulda spent the weekend shooting pythons out in the everglades. But we couldn't - because of these assinine licensing requirements. Same thing with the lionfish. Once they become normal, instead of a brand new invader, people won't be motivated to go after them. We coulda fished those things out of existence, but when the state puts all these hurdles in the way, fark it, let it go.
Mixolydian Master: I would be afraid to prepare one and jab myself on one of those toxic fins.
