About Lionator Pole Spears

The original Travel Size Lionator is a light weight pole spear designed specifically for the invasive red lionfish in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and eastern Mediterranean regions. It’s 9.5” stainless steel paralyzer tip will not let the fish slide up the shaft towards your hand and the barbs will keep it locked on!

Lionator Pro Version is a little longer and it has the same heavy duty 9.5″ long 3 tine barbed paralyzer tip that resists damage if you happen to strike a rock. It also has a slightly longer sling and the same grip that everyone likes!

DISCOVERY

Invasive Lionfish in the western Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico is a recent revelation that is threatening native fish populations in a big way! While beautiful in aquariums and in their regions of origin, the Indo Pacific Lionfish are proving to be a serious problem for the fish populations in these invaded areas. Several organizations are hard at work researching this infestation and are taking steps towards a solution, or at least to try and control it somewhat.

Fishers are learning that targeting lionfish not only helps to save native fishes, but that they can get a good price for these tasty fish at local markets and restaurants now! In the past few years we have also been made aware of a similar lionfish problem in the eastern Mediterranean Sea and we are proud to be involved with concerned groups and organizations in that part of the world also!

SOLUTIONS

And now with growing awareness and ongoing research, some interesting solutions to the problem have come to light! “Spear Lionfish and eat them” is now a common phrase! Consumption of this tasty fish has increased in popularity as fishers and recreational divers and snorkelers target them as a viable food source. Anyone can help towards controlling this problem species by asking for lionfish at markets and restaurants! Today there are efforts being made to design and test commercial traps for lionfish which will provide income for fisher folks and their families some day!
