The full-feature lionfish documentary Reef Assassin inspired the naming of a US Congressional bill. There’s a plan to control the lionfish before they destroy the fishery, but do we have the guts to implement it?
Meet the players: activists desperately trying to convince government officials to adopt an ingenious lionfish population program, people in Newfoundland tell the story of how their lives, culture, and economy were changed forever after a fishery collapse, and hear from one determined elected official that vaulted the lionfish issue from the state to federal level.
