Hi Folks,
Sorry if this has already been discussed but just came back from a  
field class trip on San Salvador in the Bahamas and found plenty of  
lionfish there. Although its an amazing fish, it would sure be nice to  
eradicate it. I work on invasive freshwater inverts and fish and so  
realize this will be very unlikely. However, I would love to hear what  
you folks think about efforts to control it, its documented ecological  
impacts, and safety issues related to working in its new turf. I'll  
search websites for this as well but always find your feedback helpful.
Thanks, Brad
