Lion Fish

Lion Fish

The lionfish is a predator native to the Indo-Pacific. They can live from five to fifteen years and range in size from 2.44in to 16.69in. Lionfish are known for their venomous fin rays, a feature that is uncommon among marine fish in the East Coast coral reefs. The potency of their venom makes them excellent predators and poisonous to fishermen and divers. Lionfish prey mostly on small fish, invertebrates and mollusks in large amounts.
