Well I just returned from 3 days of diving with Stuart Cove's outfit of the west coast of New Providence iskand. Around n24.55 w 77.30. On all six dives we spotted multiple adult Lionfish. One of the DM's told a story of a contest where 25 boats, each with 4 divers, caught 1400 Lionfish in one day. I dont really know how credible that story is but the fact was that there is an epidemic of Lionfish around Nassau. I read in "Reefs"emails that they are counting. I assume the other Ocean conservation groups are worried as well.
Does anyone have a solution or a starting place?
