Re: Red Snapper Eating Lionfish

I have fed 95% of the LF i shoot back to the fish. Been doing it for over a decade. Maybe I just need to film it....Usually by the time im able to breath up and it sinks to the bottom, its already been eaten.

As far as i can tell, they ARE being consumed by other fish and have been since The Atlantis Resort screwed up and introduced them to our environment....

Are you witnessing them actively being hunted/eaten without being shot first? Just curious

Re: Red Snapper Eating Lionfish

Yes.

However Its not like im just laying there watching snapper pluck fish off a wreck, but i have seen it happen multiple times. And i have kneeled down on tanks and fed numerous fish off the tip of my spear...I have like 93 cameras but when i speardive i dont like carrying them so much. Maybe ill get one of those GP masks soon
