Some 200 lionfish were tested in 2010 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after the NOAA issued its proclamation, and more than 25 percent were found to have unsafe levels of a toxin that can cause ciguatera, a fish-based food poisoning. If you nosh on lionfish, you risk not only the typical food poisoning symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue), but also neurological problems. The latter includes tingling in the hands and feet, the feeling that your teeth are loose and a reversed sense of temperature.
Bats host more viruses than any other mammal on Earth. In fact, it's believed that the Ebola outbreak of 2014 came from bats in West Africa. The real danger is not so much from eating bats but from being bitten or scratched by them during hunting or from coming in contact with their bodily fluids during cooking and preparation.
To a starving person eating a bat in the wild may not seem like such a bad idea, but unfortunately, the consequences could be deadly. Plus, who would want to contract a disease for a bat?! No, thanks!
It's the same way with a lionfish. If you were to get food poisoning it could make you even sicker. Since you're trying to survive and make it through, I would stick with finding a quality meal that won't make you sick. Or, at least, catch an animal you know you can eat such as a rabbit.
