Title: "Invasive Lionfish, the Kings of the Caribbean, may have met their
match."  (put the emphasis on "may have")  I noted the statement at the end
of the article that invasive species now cost the U.S.A. $120 billion
dollars a year.  That's "billion" with a "B."  (many or most of the species
that add to that cost are terrestrial or fresh water)

Be sure to check the expansion of the lionfish in the map on this page, the
expansion clearly continues, now covers the entire US eastern seaboard,
Bermuda, Caribbean to the eastern end, and Gulf of Mexico.  It takes a
minute to load, but it continues to 2013.
