A team of scientists from around the country recently spent two days off the coast of South Florida to investigate the explosion of lionfish.
What they found was shocking. Why?
Because there’s a war going on and the indomitable lionfish are winning.
These voracious predators are known to invade the shallows of coral reef. They’re dangerous because they ruin the habitat and eat juvenile spiny lobsters, snappers, groupers, tarpon and bonefish - all valuable marine species humans rely on.
