Has the lionfish “arms race” gone too far?

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door, goes the old saying. Use a Glock to hunt lionfish and you have the makings of a viral video.

First there were nets, then spears. Now lionfish hunters elsewhere are using guns and robots to kill their prey.

An enterprising lionfish hunter in Florida posted this video of him stalking and then putting a bullet through an unsuspecting lionfish.

It’s been on Youtube less than a week and it already has more than a half million views.

The DOE said it’s not something they’d like to see on our islands. Besides being an obvious ricochet risk for divers in the area, a bullet could do some major damage to the corals behind the intended target. Also, the chemicals from the gunpowder residue could be problematic in a sensitive marine environment.

It is illegal to posses a firearm in the Cayman Islands without a license.
