Some may remember a message I sent several weeks ago suggesting that a specialty fishery might be possible to help control Caribbean lionfish populations.  Those that do may be interested that the widely read Florida Sportsman Magazine published an article in its July 2009 issue titled:"Eat the Invaders" on page 31 ff.  It provides handling tips for the recreational public, as well as informing them that lionfish make "wonderful sushi and ceviche," and are terrific fried whole or filleted.  It also refers readers to www.lionfishhunter.com, where additional information and recipes may be found.
