Chefs have been helping control the spread of invasive lionfish by serving the aquatic species. This venomous fish has destroyed ecosystems in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and East Coast. The lionfish's only real predator is now humans who enjoy eating them. Chefs are experimenting with the invasive species and are hosting lionfish dinners. At the National Aquarium, the first lionfish dinner is scheduled for March 3. A second lionfish dinner will be held on April 20. Click here to read more and to view a lionfish recipe.
