    I don't understand. What is your point? What is it that happened? All I see is two pix of a reef with a lionfish on it.

    Sorry, I'm still not getting it, unless you are making some point about the LF being on the webcam. Is this really the first time for that?

    I get it Roy Lionfish cause EXTREME damage to Caribbean marine life and reefs as they are not native...restaurants adding them to their menus is one way of combating the problem as they have no natural predators in the Caribbean Most all dive operations on Bonaire and on islands throughout the Caribbean have regular Lionfish Roundups to combat the problem!

    I'm thinking I'm gonna have to do the lionfish hunting class that PADI offers. It is pretty well a consensus that it is helpful to get as many as possible off of the reef, and they taste darn good.

    And I get where you were going with your original posts; after all the webcam pics and fish on them, it was only a matter of time before you got some lionfish captures

    Thumbs up Love the Nursery Cam angle now

    ...if I'm not mistaken, the rock piles we are seeing were put there by a guy who lives at HV about 6mts out of the year. He likes to swim back and forth across the cove in front of the resort and put them there to attract marine life so he'd have something interesting to see while swimming They are indeed inhabited with LOTS of fishes! I remember when we were there a few years ago we saw fish GALORE, several eels and even an octopus! I WANT TO GO RIGHT NOW!!!!
