Lionfish Spikes on Cape Fear? Oh, my! (We Have a Winner!)

I can't think of a good punny title for this story. If you can, you may win a cool "Pests in Your Lake" sticker and a Vermont State Park pass, or your choice of anything from the ISW store! Post your entry here or email it to me (link on the left), ONE PER PERSON. Deadline is Monday, August 14th. Interested readers may want to check out the last punny title contest here.

Here is the story:

The current version of NOAA News Online features an article about ongoing project to research the range and spread of the lionfish (Pterois volitans) in the Atlantic Ocean. NOAA scientists are partnering with the Essential Image Source Foundation (EISF) to raise awareness about the escape and establishment of this popular marine aquarium inhabitant through a weblog maintained by the EISF. While it may sound pretty mundane in this day and age to say a project has a blog, the Lionfish Research Mission Log actually live blogs the research missions from the boat they are using to survey the Atlantic for lionfish. Here's the entry for August 2nd. A quick P.S. to the EISF though: get yourself a nice domain name for the lionfish blog instead of burying the site deep inside your own portal.

Update: A winning entry was selected, but I am having trouble contacting the person who submitted it. Stay tuned...

Congratulations to just john for coming up with the winning entry
