Invasive Lionfish

The Indo-Pacific lionfish is an invasive species in the Atlantic Ocean & Caribbean Sea. Lionfish are predators with a voracious appetite, no natural predators, and a rapid rate of reproduction. They are destroying the natural balance of the reefs by over consuming reef fish and juveniles, threatening marine life and the reef itself.

A tasty dinner for everyone on board


Lionfish are found from 10' to over 300' deep
