      I had been under the misconception these fish were poison and as such I couldn't understand why it would be sporting to kill such beautiful wildlife.

      After reading about how they're escaped aquarium fish that can lay millions of eggs each year and their massive overpopulation is threatening reef life and decimating local species, I feel better about this. Especially with how they're supposedly delicious.
