Poison Fish Crowd Fla. Waters

Lionfish Worry Researchers

In this Friday, June 28, 2013 photo, submersible pilot Randy Holt, right, communicates with the support boat as he and Stockton Rush, left, CEO and Co-Founder of OceanGate Inc., dive in the company's submersible, "Antipodes," about three miles off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Seattle-based company offered scientists and wildlife officials a close-up look at the invasive lionfish deep in the waters off South Florida aboard the Antipodes. Divers in Florida and the Caribbean are encouraged to capture and eat any lionfish they encounter to protect reefs and native marine life already burdened by pollution, over-fishing and the effects of climate change. Recreational divers max out around 130 feet and researchers and wildlife officials rarely have the means to go looking for lionfish deeper than that, but they’ve realized that the lionfish they can’t see may be their biggest concern.
