Lionfish Workshops Across the Carolinas
This week, fisherman and divers in the Carolinas are learning about the invasion of lionfish and how to deal with them. The environmental non-profit REEF is holding free classes to teach people about lionfish collecting and handling, lionfish biology, and ecological impacts. I spoke with communications and affiliate program manager Keri Kanning about the workshop and about how lionfish came to be a problem for North Carolina's native fish population.
