Cozumel, for one island, has been hosting lionfish hunts. Divemasters and specially licensed divers spear them and feed 'em to the morays and any other critter, including local restaurants. It's sad that their population has exploded, and they have decimated a lot of the native fish.
Need gloves to get rid of the spines, then they taste like a very mild fish. Make a nice ceviche too.
