What are the control measure that should have taken place? In the keys..ive caught them, on boat, bridge fishing etc. & they do taste good as one of our friends do eat them. I know that some mutton snappers do eat them....but thats not going to put a dent in their number. At least the annually lionfish derby that they do here helps some.

I think that's the only way to reduce their numbers, is for man to prey on them.
