Lionfish are nonnative invasive species that were introduced to the coastal waters of Florida over 30 years ago and have since successfully invaded the Caribbean Sea, western Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Often referred to as the worst marine invasion to date, lionfish have the potential to alter the population dynamics of our native marine communities, impacting the recreational and commercial fishing industries and overall economy of Florida.
