Lionfish

Lionfish are native to the Indo-Pacific, so they are 'invasive' anywhere else. Hundreds are now found throughout the Gulf of Mexico. Scientists at Harte Institute have found lionfish from shallow reefs to depths below 300 feet!

Seen during a visit to the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi, Texas. (14-02-03-4673)
