Is there any concern in handling them? I'm not interested in eating them but the last 2 I caught were handled with care because i'm not familiar with them.

They aren't a invasive/non-native like lionfish and migrate into our waters often.

Only if you stick a finger in their mouth. :-D

Not at all, they're harmless.

Well, harmless in the sense that you're not going to be envenomated by touching them, as you might by a lionfish. There's a whole lot of fish whose mouths I wouldn't recommended sticking your finger in.
