One Dive in a Single Spot: 25 Lionfish Removed

Primary tabs

All fish taken in rapid succession from a single, dense grouping. 16 of them were loaded with mature egg sacs, so the group had likely formed for mating. Scientific research on lionfish reproduction behavior has shown 1.5 hours before sunset to 1 hour after sunset, around isolated bottom structures, such as individual coral heads, large stand-alone rocks, wrecks, etc., surrounded by sandy bottom, is prime habitat for lionfish gatherings such as that where these fish were taken.
