Some do. They use some crazy stuff sometimes. My diver in the keys doesn't use it on anything but eels and sharks- I personally don't blame him there though.

Yeah a lot of collectors use cyanide to collect the fish. It stuns and slows down the fish, the permanent damage and death doesn't show up for a week or two which is unfortunately the time when us aquarists are brining the fish home from the LFS.

That has to be one of the coolest triggers. I would love one, but already have two triggers in my tank and don't want to press my luck.
