From Spreading, finishing Invasive Species Is Now A Competitive Sport To Prevent Them

The eradication of invasive species has become a competitive sport. Divers who can launch one predator after another can compete for cash prizes in a competition in begging, where lionfish trials devour native species.

Diver Rachel Bowman is an expert in the search, capture and finishing of lionfish, an endemic species of Indo-Pacific waters.

An mature off the coast of Australia or Indonesia usually reaches about twelve inches; groupers, eels and sharks are its natural enemies, and divers are not authorized to launch one in many countries.

Aquariums have long been a popular place to keep lionfish. They are housed in salt water tanks in tens of thousands of American homes.

The lionfish is particularly suitable for the role of observation because it drifts its days in the water.

Their shimmering white bodies covered with bright red or orange stripes, a Mohawk of ears on their backs and patterns on their fins and faces are also dazzling.

Lionfish have begun to move from aquariums to open salt water over the past 50 years, perhaps somewhere in the tropics of the western hemisphere.

The first sighting was reported in 1985 off Dania Beach, near Miami.

There are now millions of lionfish in the Western Atlantic, which is terrible news because they are thriving very well in their new home.

By consuming other forms of marine life and disturbing the balance of narrative life, They harm native species.

Drive out the invaders

Bowman does not consider himself primarily an environmentalist, although the elimination of lionfish has a definite conservation benefit.

She considers her prey to be invaders and thinks it is her duty to repel it.

She explained: “What you are chasing is not prey, it is an enemy. Isn’t it nice to be on the side of the good guys?”

She also welcomes the absence of laws prohibiting the slaughter of lionfish. She said there were no restrictions on bags, gender, seasons, boats or equipment.

Hunters are a throwback to a time when you could go too far and shoot with anything you wanted – at a time, oddly enough, when conservation measures were necessary.

“The lionfish is the only species that is one hundred percent wide open.”

In their close company, the lionfish divers share accommodation, exchange diving stories and enjoy a friendly competition to see who can catch the most fish.

Healthy and functional ecology is their goal; the elimination of lionfish protects the yellowtail snapper, which can be caught for food.

Lionfish hunting is worth it, but it takes time.

This is a very useful because if you want to follow the instructions in the instructions and if you want to follow the instructions, then please do not overdo it and do not crochet.

With a perch spear, a metal rod with sharp tips at the end, which you drive into the water with a rubber blade, you need to finish the lionfish one by one.

These sticks have lengths-three feet, seven feet, three or five teeth – and are known by names such as Lionfish Buster and Lionator.
