Plenty More Fish In The Sea  

The Cuban News Agency is reporting that two lionfish (Pterois volitans) were recently captured in the waters off of Cuba's central-north coast, near Villa Clara. This is apparently the first known occurrence of this Indo-Pacific species in Cuban waters, though lionfish have been showing up all over the Atlantic lately.

The lionfish were captured and placed in a holding tank, whereupon they immediately demanded mojitos and medianoches in exchange for their further cooperation.
