I have eaten them back home in Jamaica. Not gonna lie, they are delicious. However, the problem is that over-fishing them has led to a decline in the health of our island's reefs due to their crucial role in the coral ecosystem.
Here in FL they are considered "Ornamental Reef fish" and are prohibited from harvest by spear. My reading thus far says they are allowed to be taken alive for aquariums and such if you have the proper commercial license.
