Episode: Scourge of the Lionfish
Lionfish are beautiful, colorful reef fish found throughout the Indian and Pacific oceans — that’s the good news. The bad news is they’re now found all over the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic coasts of North and South America as well. Alien to those waters, lionfish are the perfect invasive species — aggressive, without predators, prolific breeders and tolerant of a wide range of conditions.• Visit the Scourge of the Lionfish webpage
