😱😱😱 Lionfish invasion in Agean sea! Saw many Lionfish during last few days’ dives.

The lionfish (Pterois miles) is a carnivorous & venomous fish native to the Indo-Pacific that is an invasive species in the Atlantic and now in the Mediterranean & Aegean Sea. 
This invasive species has the potential to harm reef ecosystems because it is a top predator that competes for food and space with overfished native stocks. They reproduce all year long; a mature female releases roughly two million eggs a year. Lionfish have very few documented natural predators due to their venomous spines. Moray Eels and groupers are known to eat them but moray eels were nowhere to be seen this year, probably diminishing due to another invasive species, giant sea urchins. On the other hand local groupers such as Epinephelus marginatus, the dusky grouper (Orfoz) are overfished, almost to the extinction.

How cute is this squidy? ❤️🐙 #didyouknow Bobtail squid have bioluminescent bacteria within their bodies. These glowing bacteria are then used as camouflage by the bobtail squid to mimic the moonlight at night and to eliminate their own shadows, thereby protecting against predators in what is a great example of a symbiotic relationship. Because their ability to glow allows them to go about their nights undetected, they tend to spend the days concealed in the sand.
