Lionfish, The Beautiful Outlaw explores the Indo-Pacific lionfish as an invasive species in the Western Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. Pterois volitans is a bold, voracious predator with a mane of venomous spines, capable of rendering a sting fatal to many marine species and excruciatingly painful to humans. As an invasive species, this deadly beauty could upset the delicate ecological balance of reef systems already in peril. Fear and misinformation abound as the marine community struggles to cope with the invasion. The typical result is a death sentence for the Lionfish. In Lionfish, The Beautiful Outlaw, documentary filmmakers Paul Cater Deaton and Monica Gephart travel the world in search of answers. Film locations include native lionfish habitats in the Philippines, Solomon Islands and the Egyptian Red Sea, and their “adopted” waters in the Florida Keys, Bonaire, Belize, and the Virgin Islands. Features interviews with Dr. Sylvia Earle, Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry and others. Widescreen. Total Running Time 28:30.
