    I joined a group of divers for the annual pier cleanup today. While there I spotted and killed a small Lionfish. There was a bigger one spotted by another diver and is reported to still be in the area. I notified Reef.org. Im not sure what to do with the body. Its in my freezer. I was told that FAU may want it for research.

    Anyway, the video is kinda cool. I jerked it around a few times. I tired to be quick, but it moved in fast little bursts.

    Congratulations, nicely done. The little ones are really hard to kill.

    You may want to look into getting a Foldspear. UnderSeas Sports Fort Lauderdale is carrying them, with a lionfish tip, now.

    BRAVO!

    Nice job! Cut of the spines and eat it, they're supposed to be pretty tasty.

    I would eat him, be he is too small. Not worth all the trouble.
