LIONFISH - Young P. volitans, caught on Long     Island, on display at Atlantis Marine World. (Photos by Todd R.     Gardner)
I’ve grown somewhat accustomed to  seeing these brightly-colored wayward fishes in my underwater  wanderings, so when I happened upon a tiny lionfish clinging to a wooden  piling along the south shore of Long Island in September, 2001, it took  a moment for me to fathom the implications. This was not just a stray  from the tropical Atlantic. This fish was way off course. 
This is a wonderful article in Advanced Aquarist by Todd Gardner about the discovery of Lionfish in the cold Atlantic waters off Long Island and the possible migration of a species.
