The World Record Lionfish MASSACRE! 1,399 Lionfish Killed! [VIDEO]
If Alex Fogg, aka “The Lionfish Killer”, was a country singer, I can only imagine his hit song would be…
“Save A Reef, Kill A Lionfish”
(a play off of the hit song “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” for those of you that don’t like country music)
And yes, this picture below is what 1,399 dead lionfish look like! They put a water bottle in so you can get a frame of reference to just how many lionfish are in this “death tub”.
I can only imagine that someone had some serious carpal tunnel after cleaning all of those lionfish… (in case you didn’t know, lionfish are incredibly good to eat).
And for those of you that only thought the lionfish invasion was mostly a big deal in the Gulf of Mexico, all of this footage was taken from Jacksonville, FL! So this lionfish issue is quickly moving up the east coast as well.
How can you help eliminate the destructive lionfish from our reefs and underwater ecosystems?
Become a Reef Ranger, or just get out there and pluck off a lionfish or two (or 1,000) when you see them.

In the meantime, enjoy our friend Alex Fogg and crew putting the hurting on some lionfish!
