This Lionfish Stepped into the FWC’s Underwater Surgical Center

FWC Scientist perform surgery on a lionfish to impact tracking device

Watch as scientists from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) implant an acoustic transmitter into a lionfish which was caught off of Marathon, FL in the Florida Keys. The transmitter is used by FWC scientists to observe lionfish behavior and travel patterns in the Florida Keys.  All that is missing from the video is some fast tempo classical music.
