Just use the machine, it's proven to work and fish can't even feel pain. In fact, it's proven that fish don't physically have the neurological pathways to feel pain. If you could find a way to capture them without killing them, you could probably just put them in a different habitat so they could start over.

Compared to shooting them the electrocution thing is kinda mean. Maybe it is just me but wasting a bunch of lion fish while diving on a reef sounds like a way more entertaining fishing trip than...Ya know, A normal fishing trip Are lion fish edible? If so slap a fancy name on it, Jack the price WAY up, And introduce it to rich hipsters. In a few years the population would be in danger of extinction.

I love the daily show but I find the problem with these shows at times is that they’re so focused on comedy that they will detract from the gravity of a situation because laughs are their priority. The lionfish invasion is a major disaster affecting many underwater habitats in the world and the lives that depend on these ecosystems. the Daily Show did this topic a disservice. Most people wouldn’t give this subject a 2nd thought after such a fickle segment. Anyway.. maybe that’s what actual news is for..

I Identify as a Dragon hehehe true btw check out some documentaries about the lion fish invasion. Very interesting. Also apparently they are very delicious. But the public has to be educated about them so that they can encourage people to hunt and consume them. They don’t really have a natural predator so their numbers are out of control. They just decimate local populations of fish.

Anything that draws attention to these nasty little things is a good idea. They're such greedy bastards that they get fatty livers because they over eat. The reefs are an _all you can eat buffet_ for Lionfish. All because a small number of them were released by some selfish shits because they didn't want to deal with them. Some reports say the number was as low as five released, others say twelve but regardless, these things can produce two million offspring in a single year. Hunt them with impunity and then eat them. Oh, and check some information on how to remove the venom spines safely. It only takes some thick gloves and a pair of scissors.

Ronnie Chieng is spitfire. I've been a fan of Trevor from the get-go. I've been a fan of Ronnie Ching, my keyboard did it. From the get-go too. Ronnie has been my favorite from all the others. Hasan Minhaj is killing it with his new show! One of my favorite shows now. Jordan Klepper's was not my cup of tea, but watched it. Michelle Wolf's, nah.. but still watch it. Roy Wood Jr., I don't think I get him. But I can say. On a show that was modeled for and by ARI SHAFFIR! You going to put a puppy on a dragon's den! This Is Not Happening is not for a clean comedian host. Nobody from The Daily Show should be hosting that. I love that show, it's not the same. You ether are a clean or a dirty comic. If Roy was to commit, he could NOT be on camera on the daily, unless in an interview or something, a guest. I think that Ronnie Chieng has been smart holding out. I strongly believe he should do a podcast. Film it, put it up on YouTube. Put it on podcast all over. Sponsors pay for it, not the listeners. With a platform like that. He could curse his mother on the podcast. Say whatever the fuck. And still hold his other job and be the same one the daily. Ronnie Chieng talk to Joey Coco Diaz, Ari Shaffir, Joe Rogan to start with. And you'll be a hit before you even put something out.

The gun is unnecessary. Lionfish just stay put because they don't recognize anything as a predator in these waters. The best method is to capture them with a net and eat them. The bullet is just ruining good food. Lame. Follow the Caribbean example and have a derby and cookout.

This is all really stupid. Are you telling me that the Lionfish is the Kudzu of the Florida reefs? And if so, why are they senselessly blowing them apart? For God's sake, the pet trade sells them for $35-$80 and up. They sell for eating for around $10/lb. Shouldn't a whole swarm of assholes be down there making money off of catching and selling them? "No natural predators" my ass! Humans are responsible for exterminating over 80% of all wildlife since the dawn of civilization.

Climate change is probably to blame rather than flushing your pet lion fish 😁, and hence much more serious. Shooting the lion fish may feel satisfying but it isn’t going to rid you of the problem. They will just keep coming. You need to reverse climate change and I don’t believe the world is technologically ready to do that yet, plus America at the moment, has no interest in reversing climate change. If you want less lion fish, you’ll be better off voting dem/ blue in the midterm elections.

I dont think they were serious about the flushing (although possible) Basically humans have a tendency to bring over exotic animals from different countries and setting them out in the wild. For Australia, they have a rabbit/hare problem cause some idiot brought them over so he could hunt them. For the South there was the anaconda problem cause some people accidentally released them when they were supposed to be pets. Bees were all originally from Asia, now they live all over which is good for the plants in the area but then the bees gain lots of diseases they cant fight. It's just chaos

Or you can just swim up to them with a spear, a sling and a hard plastic container. You don’t even need to launch the spear, just use the sling to stab it into them. Lion fish don’t naturally have predators so they don’t even try to swim away as you catch their whole school.

If it works reliably and takes accepts standard off the shelf 9mm rounds, the gun is cheap, quick (for the action of killing the fish), and efficient. Besides, how many Floridians would love to get paid, or even volunteer to shoot fish with someone providing ammo? You just need to make sure they don't take any money or fish home, or shoot the wrong wildlife. That said, they're apparently edible once you remove the spies, so you can also go fishing for them. That said, shooting might be faster.
