Customizable Spear for LIONFISH Fishing / Hunting
by bustmold, published
Lionfish are the first exotic species to invade coral reefs. They have multiplied at a rate that is almost unheard of in marine history, going from nonexistent to pervasive in just a few short years. Along the way, they've eaten or starved out local fish, disrupted commercial fishing, and threatened the tourism industry. Some experts believe that lionfish are so widespread that their effect on the ecosystems of the Western Atlantic will be almost impossible to reverse. Still, some people are determined to try, if only to protect those waters which haven't yet been invaded.

:) its true, you don't want to be stung by the lionfish
We are working on extendable version of the spear. You would be able to print modular parts and extend the length of the spear
Since the OP is a marine-biologist that's cool.
As an amateur diver myself, I would want this thing mounted on a 5 foot staff, I sure as hell do not want to get anywhere NEAR a lionfish.
