I read, with surprise, a quote in the article that indicated that Lion Fish are not yet in our waters. While still quite young, back in the early 1960s, I saw Lion Fish out at Shark Wharf (Red Hook). They have been with us for many years. I am sure there must be some local fishermen who have made similar sightings over the years here and in BVI waters.
