Red Lion or Fire Fish

They have found Lion Fish in Cozumel Mexico and they do not belong in this environment.
No known predator to keep them in check!

They have been catching them for study and to determine a course of action.
This same species showed up in the water off the southeast coast of the US.

They belong in the South Western Pacific. This a a pictiure after a Mexican
Dive master caught a baby.
