    Great pic but this is crazy - it kills me seeing an Indo-Pacific and Red Sea icon firmly established in the Caribbean thanks to some stupid aquarium keeper...these lionfish should be removed or destroyed, they do not belong there. They'll eat everything in sight!

    We saw about 3 or 4, though I understand there are many more.

    I'd heard that a woman had chartered a boat and was cruising the Caribbean, just to destroy lionfish. I don't know what her, er, "success rate" is.

    Thank you for having this pic as Creative Commons. I love the colors and used it in a blog post. It's probably not particularly interesting, but here is the address wittlemelody.blogspot.com/2010/01/sea-life.html

    Very nice image to be sure. It is indeed a shame that these are wreaking havoc with the reefs on the eastern seaboard, where they don't belong. I've seen the movements to hunt them. Also understand they are good eating!
