It's an idea so simple, it makes you wonder why no one's already thought of it. Take pressure off ocean stocks of fish by eating invasive species like Florida's lionfish.
Humans are the most ubiquitous predators on earth,” said Philip Kramer, director of the Caribbean program for the Nature Conservancy. “Instead of eating something like shark fin soup, why not eat a species that is causing harm, and with your meal make a positive contribution?”
Invasive species are a problem across the globe. Asian carp in the Mississippi and other fish could be managed by commerical fishing.
What do you think about eating invasive species? Good or lame idea?
