Our host, Danni Washington, an engaging science communicator with a background in marine biology, takes us into the story of the lionfish, one of the most aggressive invasive species on the planet. They were introduced to the Atlantic inadvertently in the 1980s, and in 30 years the fish has taken over waters from Maine to Venezuela, and even the Mediterranean. We learn how invasive species can rapidly spread, and the work that innovators and scientists are developing to protect our ecosystems.
We travel with Danni as she goes on expeditions with scientists, follows breakthroughs with engineers, tastes lionfish prepared by master chefs, dives in a deep sea submarine, and investigates the lionfish’s natural habitat. Throughout the voyage, we explore the role evolution plays in our ecosystems as we strive to understand our role in navigating these changing biospheres.
