Gulf Coast Lionfish Invasion
This video might seem like a huge haul, but lion fish are an invasive population that are harming the waters of the Gulf. In response to the Lionfish population growth which has exploded since 2010, the Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition has formed in hopes of lowering the population of these invasive fish. Why is it so hard to lower this population number? Because they are eating other fish that are huge sources of food for the area, and people aren't really accustomed to eating lionfish, so the population has nothing keeping it in check. Learn some facts about why lionfish are being hunted like in the video above, and, if you're in the area, do your part to get the lionfish off the reefs! --------------------------------------------------------- Lionfish Facts! - Lionfish are not native to the Gulf of Mexico. They originate from the Indo-Pacific, and it is believed that they spread into the Gulf after they were released by aquarium owners in South Florida. - The Lionfish (Pterois sp.) is a non-native, invasive species originally from the Pacific. - Lionfish possess 13 dorsal, 2 pelvic, and 3 anal spines that are venomous and can cause a very painful stick if not handled carefully. - Lionfish have no natural predators in the gulf. - Lionfish are very difficult to catch using traditional hook & line fishing methods. - Lionfish stomachs can expand over 30 times in volume after consuming a large meal. - Lionfish are capable of releasing 30,000 eggs per week.

Love It Or Hate It: Do You Like To Go Fishing?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about fishing? For some of us, fishing is a whole lot of fun outdoors! While others think the whole fishing thing is all kinds of savage. How about you? Is fishing something you LOVE or absolutely HATE to do? @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx @yaakattackk @Starbell808 @KyleBerke @fatimajj23 @GabrielMarques @Alletaire @kkimberlyy @Priscillasdoor @chrisg3584 @brandontearss @bradleygialamas @justme29 @buddyesd @changoleon @Sara3 @felicityautumn @ssora @MorghanPorter @IzamarPalomo @realjoy @Heartofgold35 @mscocoasupreme @MyFunkySpell @ChakiahWallace @Krystalstar22 @KarlythePanda66 @JoeyNelson @TonyLepera @dianes6711 @Aripendragon @MichelleHolly @AviannaLin @seouls @AustinThurston @Sammyjuicoooo @divanicola05 @RavenQueen0810 @captpeter @Kourtland @Tsukasakrdcd @MistyTaylorByrd @MariPili @TylerCassalata @SarahRegulski @Melodicballoon @heyitskat @KellerBertrand @jiggzy19 @gogglesghost @BanalataBera @JayAi @mpandy @Gibbous1992 @Kody18 @ctsr1 @iamaweirdoo @Jasminep96 @CynthiaForeman @MzDawson31508 @MundaneGirl @DeniseNishikawa @lvplus2 @YourConscience @Bose @wrightally15 @jla23 @tiffany1922 @bettytolliver @Pocahontas41 @Dojjin @MelissaGarza @donmarques6 @VanessaAcosta @HollasiS @karlkahambwe @LexTrilly @HikariAkuhei @xander1981 @LinnyOk @colvitt @Isolate @Birdy915 @Nerdydemigod @na11 @CristalTrujillo @camilletoomer @selfishmachines @JonanthanP
