UPDATE: Lionfish Invasion Reaches New Depths


Ok, so here we are. First, the highlights:

  1. Lionfish eat pretty much anything smaller than them. They also breed a lot more than native species and out-compete them for food.
  2. Lionfish have been confirmed at 300 ft., in “large populations”. Nice.
  3. The whole invasion has been trace (genetically) to just a few releases off South Florida.
  4. We, human beings, started it with saltwater aquariums.
