TERRA 439 PART TWO: Trouble in the Tropics: Invasive Lionfish

The invasive lionfish--venomous and voracious--has reached the tropical western Atlantic, where its reproductive rate is soaring. Invasive species expert, Lad Akins, of the Reef Environmental Education Foundation; along with College of the Bahamas marine science intern, Everton Joseph; and specimen collector for the Bermuda Aquarium, Chris Flook, team up in the waters of the Bahamas, where they dive, collect, tag and dissect, to better understand the invader in its new home. They'll run key field experiments, to identify potential controls, and assess the likely impacts of the invasion, on fragile reef ecosystems and ocean-based economies.
