Re: A Visit To Possibly The Most Infested Lionfish Region Offshore Florida

I pulled 50 pounds in a dive on a wreck 120ish this week,the area I worked was about 10' by 20'.We had the SCDNR due a catch intercept on our unload for otoliths and interviews. We told the researchers it was worse every year and it should be the number 1 EC fisheries priority. But instead they are spending 50 million on catch shares studies and other BS.Researcher were sympathetic but politics drives fisheries. Nice vid,clear.

What kind of research do you want done on them? If a handful of them populated all the areas we have now, all the research in the world isn't going to do a thing about it. Any money spent on lionfish research would be a horrendous waste of taxpayer dollars IMHO.

Bounties,research on traps/methods that have little effect on native fish.Agree that just studying them is pointless.

Re: A Visit To Possibly The Most Infested Lionfish Region Offshore Florida

If there is a commercial market, how much per pound are you guys getting for lionfish? Gutted or whole? Also, what kind of license do you need to sell this particular fish?
