    If you have any doubts about just how severe the lionfish invasion is on the Atlantic Coast and Gulf of Mexico, just check out this video. This YouTube video uploaded by Alex Fogg was taken on a recent dive with the Coast Watch Alliance in the last Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition derby in Pensacola, Florida, that had such a high-density of invasive lionfish, we had to do a double take.

    The dive site was an upside-down airplane wreck where they snagged more than 200 lionfish and plenty more were left at the site due to lack of air and bottom time. If you are in the area and want to learn more, check out the Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition.
