Default Resilient Lionfish

Check out how resilient our lionfish are. This guy has had it's tail removed and it is completely healed. Not sure what happen to his tail, but he was doing just fine without it. The invaders are tough. However, this guy and 70 of his buddies met their maker yesterday and are on plates today.

Wow! That is quite disturbing when you understand that a lot of divers shoot lionfish and leave them to die!

Water ninja, would you be willing to share photos of that fish with me so I could include it in LF workshops? Of course, you will always get photo credits. The Emerald Coast Reef Assoc. is a non-profit organization. We never charge for workshops nor do we put our hands in taxpayers pockets. [email protected]

Candy makes a great point about leaving them on the bottom. That's what I used to do until I realized how good to eat they are. I wonder how many of those lived on, maybe just long enough to lay eggs.

That is amazing. And 70 lion fish in a day??? Is that uncommon to see? I have been away sense 2009, and I don't remember seeing more than a handful in many years... I wasn't really looking for them though. They must have come in by the thousands over the past few years. I'm sure there have been people talking about this on here.. I'm about to do some searching.

It's hit and miss with the lionfish densities. They are on every spot, except those getting hit frequently. The density varies widely. I run Blue Water Escape Charters and work closely with Dreadknot Charters. Between the two of us we try and keep the populations down on our honey holes. When we find a big population, we run charters to those locations and turn a Lionfish Eradication Team loose on them. If the weather is good this weekend, we are running two trips like this. The trip on Sunday has openings.
