Diving for Lionfish

Record #:
The lionfish has venomous spines. It eats everything, produces eggs that free float, and has few known predators. Spotted off the North Carolina Coast in August 2000, it is the first marine invasive fish to have established itself in Atlantic waters. Loughner discusses this threat to the state's coastal ecosystems and the dangers posed to divers and fishermen.
