if the lionfish start to seriously take out the grouper I'm turning into the "Lion-Nater"........there is no better tasting fish than the grouper.......and they're BIG......we can't let this happen........

I'd imagine digesting them is pretty much like with reptiles that are fed rodents with claws, birds with beaks, claws, feathers, as long as it goes in head first, that's great, everything kind of slides along. If it goes in backwards (butt in first), you have a potentially big problem if a spine, beak, claw gets stuck in/punctures the intestine.

Indeed. I despise it when divemasters and snorkel guides, along with ill-informed tourists, feed the local fish. It happens all over. The fish will actually attack and nip you when you don't have a handout they're expecting.

fish, recipe

Lionfish We were in Whole Paycheck today looking for some hard to find things. They had whole lionfish for $8.99 a pound. We didn't get any but for those of you that like them, might want to check and see if your local WF has them. Really surprised they still had their full spine complement. 3 stars 1 reviews
