Open Source Lion Fish Hunting

Pay People to Identify Lion Fish and Kill Them
  (+5)

Lion Fish are an invasive species etc., and they kind of need to die in some places.

There should be a nonprofit that pays people to identify Lion Fish on underwater camera streams on the internet. They would alert moderators who would push the kill button. The moderator would confirm that the Fish was a Lion Fish, that it was in the target range, and would send a retractable spear through its head.

       Remote controlled lion fish hunting minisubs.   

       Minisub is attached to a solar-collector buoy by an umbilical. Buoy has the telemetry link. Minisub has IR/low light binocular cameras for hunting at night.   

       Sign up for an account. Log in to an available sub. Prowl the reef. Earn points and credit for every lionfish you spear. Put your initials in the high scorer table. Be an eco-warrior in the most literal sense. Image recognition interlock prevents accidental spearing of non- lionfish.   

       Pay extra to have your trophy shipped to you in a jar of formalin.   

       No bag limit, always open season.   

       Open special "parlours" in Tokyo and watch the lionfish get hunted to extinction.   

       All that's needed is someone to translate "Tiny spiny stripey red whale-harpooning club" into Japanese …

       I hope you can use a blockchain to kill lion fish because I don't think anyone will be interested otherwise.

       Even non-profit outfits need revenue streams - can you work that in somehow?   

       Divers in the recently invaded areas are already in kill on site mode.

       Just start a rumour that eating lionfish eyeballs cures impotence.

       Grants, donations from interested parties, Kill A Lionfish Club dues, advertising on the interface, etc.

       Actually, medium-yield fusion devices initiated at the sea surface are acceptably effective at killing lionfish.

       Would it also affect telling-the-truth-fish?

       Upon further reflection [8th]'s jar of formalin is too restrictive - I want a small school of them, artificially preserved in full flight mode, suspended as a mobile.

       There's also the argument that humans are an invasive species, that have also been introduced through human agency into many environments.

       Lionfish - adult mass, 0.5 to 1.5 kg.   

       Human - adult mass 60 - 100 kg.   

       You're going to need a bigger boat ...

       "Chisana togejo no sutoraiki reddo kujira mori kurabu"   

       Happy now?   

       BTW I just Google Translate-d it, so don't blame me for "reddo" instead of "akka".   

       Free bonus feature - "Watashi no hobakurafuto wa unagi de mitasa rete imasu"

       Hardly much of a bonus ...

       Depends if you like eels.
