Some bad news from underwater in the Caribbean. Indo-Pacific Lionfish have apparently been spotted on the Mayan Riviera, the stretch of coast from Cancun in the north to Tulum in the south, of Quintana Roo, Mexico, and throughout much of the rest of the Caribbean. These fish don’t belong there. It’s not their natural habitat, and they’re predators to most other reef species. They are voracious. And to top it off, their spines are also toxic to humans.
Let’s go for a swim.
