Take note Floridians! Lionfish ban!

    As of Friday, it will be illegal in the state of Florida to import any Lionfish. With this I assume it will be illegal to purchase them. From my understanding, Florida encourages those who want one for their aquarium to go catch one instead.

    I feel like the horse has left the barn already on this issue, but its good to see them finally paying attention to it and trying to take care of it. Good move.

    Very interesting. Lion fish are so popular in my area. Even PetCo carries them! I'll be interesting in seeing this unfold as the 'ban' settles in.
