01/02/2014- I was perusing tonight and found a couple very informative things on Lionfish.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpvV8TlFC5o  
Which is a scientific expose on the lionfish invasion in Bermuda called "Appetite for Extinction".  I was astonished at some of the information, such as: lionfish are known to inhabit at depths of 1,000 feet.
They also showed an experiment. Two groupers in a tank. A Pinfish was introduced and both groupers instantly went after and devoured the Pinfish. When a tiny lionfish was introduced, the groupers were at first interested, then the baby lionfish, about 1/10 the size of the groupers, just swam right at the groupers and made them back off. Similar to what I saw with my grouper/lionfish encounter

The other is a very good article about lionfish hunting, gear, techniques: by the World Lionfish Hunters Association
