“Previous studies have observed how the lionfish manages to trap its prey. A single fish was found to reduce a native species’ population by 79 percent in five weeks. “It seems that the native fish don’t perceive lionfish as fish,” Mark Hixon, a marine biologist at Oregon State University said, pointing to the fish’s markings. “They swim right up to it,” only to end up being swallowed whole.”
