Please eat this fish to extinction.

What an interesting idea. Personally I’ve never tried lionfish, but word on the street is that it is quite delectable. Lionfish are an invasive species (and aggressive predator) to the Atlantic. And to keep them from chomping their way to domination, NOAA developed an “Eat Lionfish” campaign.

It’s like a reverse seafood watch card – well, if only for this one species.

While it might be hard to get lionfish on the dock down at Point Loma, all you seafood eaters out there can rightfully eat the cr*p out of locally caught striped bass and still feel just as good.
