Lionfish The Other White Meat

Lionfish are not only good to eat but an invasive species.  I went to Florida and visited the South East American Lionfish Eradication Group  (SEALEG)  to learn more about  lionfish eradication.  I am very familiar  with the aquarium trade so this is an interesting subject for me in that aspect, as well as an angler.  I used to own a saltwater aquarium store and sold these fish.
