For those not familiar with the lionfish situation here in South Florida, here’s a quick primer. The Indo-pacific fish species, introduced into Atlantic waters by aquarium owners in the 1980s have become a nuisance. Over the past three decades, the fish, a vociferous eater and breeder, with a lone female producing up to one million eggs per breeding season, have gone from invasive species to established in the waters ranging from as far north as Rhode Island to as far south as Brazil, and every spot in-between, hitting hard the sub tropic and tropic waters of Florida, the Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico.
