Lionfish diving deeper, creating problems
FLORIDA -- Lionfish are diving deeper, and that is causing some concern for researchers. A new study by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission shows that the invasive fish have made their way into reefs over 130 feet deep. That's a problem because recreational divers typically can't go any deeper than that. The FWC wants divers and fishermen to continue capturing the ones they can reach. Lionfish negatively impact Florida’s reef and wildlife.
