Lionfish invade America’s waters

Published on Jul 22, 2013
The Lionfish is an invasive species that gathers around coral reef and preys on the fish in the vicinity, but somehow these underwater creatures made their way into America’s waters and are now disturbing the local eco-systems. Some believe that the fish which is native to the Indian and South Pacific Oceans made its way to the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico during Hurricane Andrew. Doctor James Morris a marine ecologist for NOAA has more on the species and explains how he believes the fish traveled such a long distance.
