The Ultimate Lionfish KILLER

If you have been following the lionfish invasion down in Florida, you know that these beautiful (yet venomous) fish are creating a bunch of issues for fishing habitats.

In fact, it is one of the only salt water fish that the state of Florida has no limit on, as they are encouraging the elimination of these fast reproducing fish that have no natural predators here in the Florida water.

And keep in mind, these lionfish aren’t just a problem here in Florida. They are starting to show up all over the Gulf, and according to lionfish expert Alex Fogg, these fast spreading lionfish are even popping up in high numbers near the oil rigs off of the Mississippi coast.

(the female lionfish can carry up to 15,000 eggs)

The Ultimate Lionfish Killer

But the good news is that with divers like this (aka the Ultimate Lionfish Killer), the lionfish population is slowly starting to reverse course.

This video was from Alex Fogg as he was diving with the Coast Watch Alliance near an old airplane wreck off of Pensacola, Florida.

According to the video, they bagged 200 lionfish from this spot alone!

Well done!

Related to helping eliminate lionfish, there has been some footage of sharks and even some grouper that are starting to prey on the lionfish as well (so perhaps the Florida predators can be trained to eat lionfish)

(If you haven’t seen the Grouper sucking down the lionfish like it was an oyster, then watch it here)
