Lionfish – Beautiful but Invasive

Roger J. Muller, Jr. is spreading the word about how lionfish are destroying the underwater marine world. Lionfish are eating all the small tropical fish, small shrimp and lobsters. If we do not educate others to the problem, no one will know about it and care. By lionfish hunting, scuba diving and snorkeling, we take photos of the lionfish and write lionfish articles that will help people understand that they do not belong in the Atlantic and Caribbean Oceans. As a scuba diver, I decided over ten years ago to take up the plight of killing as many lionfish as possible to cut their numbers down.
