Scourge of the Lionfish

About This Episode


Starting from a few aquarium escapes, in just 30 years the beautiful but voracious (and venomous) Pacific lionfish has become the world’s worst marine alien invasion. They’re now all over the Caribbean and up and down the Atlantic coasts of North and South America. Diving in the Bahamas to help clear them out and sitting down to a lionfish dinner in the Yucatan, Carl Safina finds out how people are fighting back.
