Lionfish hunting Akumal Riviera Maya Mexico

The invasive Lion-fish

Lionfish in the Caribbean have no predators so scuba divers in the Caribbean have started hunting them.  These fish breed prolifically and basically eat anything they can fit into their mouths, which means they are eating the reef fish.

Lionfish hunting is the only viable method for controlling lionfish populations in the small areas.  Native fish have rebounded in areas that are regularly maintained by hunters.
