Why Must We Hunt Lionfish?

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 seven years ago to take up the plight of killing as many lionfish as possible to cut their numbers down.

I'm working with a variety of people to develop a viable lionfish trap that captures lionfish almost exclusively, doesn't ghost-fish if it is lost, doesn't damage the bottom, and minimizes the risk of entanglement of other wildlife like turtles and marine mammals.
