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.

Dynamite the reef, that'll get 'em.

It's going to be tough to pin these fish down. You can't trust a word they say.

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.
