The robot could be nice, but I doubt anything viable could come of it.
Several things inaccurate in the article. "There may be well over a million lionfish [in American waters]." I laugh. I doubt that number. Maybe dozens of millions? Or even hundreds of millions? And they have been caught as far south as southern Brazil, further south than Rio. I did read that fairly recently, but cannot give the reference. Not a surprise, though.
Doesn't it happen that when a species becomes over populated, a disease shows up to control that population?
Just commenting on a terrible problem that is out of sight to most Americans, and most people.
