Lionfish are becoming more and more out of control.
Lion fish might look pretty but they are gluttonous pests that are threatening the eco-system of the Caribbean Sea. They eat whatever they can swallow, and with their venomous spikes, they have virtually no natural enemies. They are also unpopular among fishermen, who fear their painful sting. But the marine protection organization, Blue Ventures, is waging war on the fish, which breed so quickly that they are posing a threat to the Belize Barrier Reef, the world’s second largest after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Intent on saving the reef, Jennifer Chapman of Blue Ventures is trying to create a market for lion fish in Belize
In order to control them, all the people have to do is eat them.
Not a bad thing to do since they are propagating faster than you can shake a stick!
