I'm wondering if lionfish are proliferating even more so in the Florida
waters then in other places. Based on the size it would seem they are.
Do any of the Coral Listers know of a size chart for lionfish?
Any recent counts?


Capt. Jimmy Nelson got quite the surprise when targeting lionfish while
shooting a segment off Islamorada for his show Extreme Fishing Adventures:
a HUGE lionfish! The large lion measured in at 18.75 inches or 477 mm,
which according to the Reef Environmental Education Foundation is the
largest lionfish they have officially measured.
