13:58 "Invasion of the Alien Fish" is the story of Indo-Pacific Lionfish invading the Atlantic and Caribbean with catastrophic results. This nonnative species has no local predators and is propagating at a rate that adversely impacts the coral reef habitats of the Eastern United States, Caribbean and South America. The lessons to be learned are of diligent monitoring of environmental impacts (natural and manmade) and of responsible management and proactive stewardship of all of our natural resources. This is a story of communities banding together for environmental protection and of proactive advocacy for sustainable habitats.
