Very nice. Must be an isolated spot to have so many critically endangered triggers and snappers on it. Man those lionfish. Makes me want to dive again. Like picking peas. Well peas that will hurt you but really delicious peas. Great vid.

Great video and looks like some nice vis! Never seen the lionfish off to the side of the reef like that. You think that grouper kept them at bay or were they were spawning? Got spined in the thumb a couple weeks ago keeping my hand up close like that to the funnel so be careful! No fun...

Every big gag I shoot, I always look at the stomach contents and have never found any evidence of them eating lionfish. There seems to be a misconception that the grouper in our waters see lionfish as a food source. I get blasted all the time on my youtube channel about shooting gags. From what I understand, the grouper and sharks in the Red Sea keep the lionfish population under control.
