Help control the lionfish population by eating it

Posted:

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A restaurant is helping "up" the demand for lionfish: It's serving them for dinner!

The lionfish population is growing, so Leftovers Cafe is putting lionfish on its menu hoping if it increases in poularity, it will stop wreaking havoc on other fish.

The other solution being discussed -- holding local lionfish derbies. A conference to discuss other solutions to control lionfish begins Tuesday and runs through Thursday in Cocoa Beach.
