CONSER VATION KILLING for Not all Guy Harvey stories start TEXT & PHOTOS BY TY SAWYER with war, mayhem, and killing. This one does. I'm on an underwater pinnacle at about 150 feet and it's covered with lionfish. And, what I'm doing has been inspired by Guy's strong conservation and stewardship of the seas. I'm diving in the Caribbean, on Guy's home island of Grand Cayman. Lionfish are from the Pacific. They don't belong here. They eat like linemen and breed like their loins are on fire. Every four days a female lionfish can pop out offspring. Normally, I seek out lionfish—which resemble a bundle of swimming ribbons— and try to capture their singular beauty as a hunter with a camera. Not today. Today, I'm a killer.
