Regularly we go on a Lion Fish hunting trip or we shoot Lion Fish during our regular spearfishing trips.
In Wikipedia, I find this super interesting text: Lionfish are skilled hunters, using specialized bilateral swim bladder muscles to provide exquisite control of location in the water column, allowing the fish to alter its center of gravity to better attack prey. The lionfish then spreads its large pectoral fins and swallows its prey in a single motion. Researchers have also noted that lionfish blow jets of water while approaching prey, apparently in order to disorient them.
The Lionfish can live from five to fifteen years and have complex courtship and mating behaviors. Females release two mucus-filled egg clusters frequently, which can contain as many as fifteen thousand eggs.
So this week we got a Lion Fish with eggs. HUGE amount of eggs compared to the size of the Lion Fish. Seriously… Very, very interesting and impressive.
Join us hunting Lion Fish!
