I remember watching an episode of Shark Tank (US show about big investors offering deals to new entrepreneurs) where some guys were pitching their idea to get Lionfish on the menu in restaurants to help curb the population in Florida. None of the Sharks invested in the idea since it would take a ton of money educating consumers about a new fish on the menu. Apparently they are really good to eat though.

You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

What a fantastic trip.
And what is that one fish? A red-headed snorkel-faced scotfish?? Interesting creature....

Yeah these guys are damn good eating, problem is the spines though, having a necrotizing venom makes them a pain for commercial uses.
However we ate this 'little' guy, blue finned trevally, caught from shore on a small telescopic rod I managed to fit in my case!!!

Beautiful pics, man! Really envious over here. Agreed with Mommy on the 3rd pic of that last grouping of pics. That school of black fish (not sure what they are) looks amazing. I'm sure it must have been an unbelievable sight to experience in the flesh.
Congrats and I hope you get to do more of these in the future. Keep posting pics if you got 'em and welcome back!
