My second job after I graduated from University was at the JSC near Houston. My parents lived only about 18 miles away and my father had a shrimp boat. One of the invasive fish back then was the Lion Fish, described in the article. My dad would ocassionally pull one up in the nets.

He gave me fish weekly, and shrimp. I'd spent my life scaling and cleaning fish and cleaned the Lion was the boneist fish I'd ever cleaned. No problem for me. Very few people would be willing to clean a Lion Fish.

I did and it was worth it. One of the most delicious fish I've ever eaten.
