Lionfish Invasion of the Atlantic


Staff member
Some of our reef enthusiasts will have heard that the lionfish have become problematic in parts of the Atlantic and their migration is being studied. This note in a recent article got my attention:

Prey: Lionfish continue to amaze us during stomach content studies. The recent effort turned up new records including two entire spotted goatfish, a large brown chromis, a small reef octopus, and even a small mollusk in its shell. Lionfishare eating nearly anything that will fit into their mouths.
