When someone in Florida dumped a few brightly colored aquarium fish into the sea no one could have foreseen the resulting environmental disaster.

The pretty but deadly lionfish have spread throughout America’s tropical waters eating everything in their path.

A Minnesota man says the only way to control the invasion of this pest is to catch them and eat them.

But, as Jason Davis found on a recent trip to Mexico, that may be easier said than done.

Watch part two here.
