Lionfish Invasion

Lionfish are getting to be more and more common around here. Last week a sweep of the pier yielded 28! We used to try to collect them for dissection and study, but lately we've been told to just chop them up and leave them on the bottom in the hope that some other creature will develop a taste for them.

The only good news is that they're still mostly too small to be cleaned and eaten by people- i.e. not yet big enough to breed here.

Doing my part.
