Invasive "vampire fish" on killing spree in Great Lakes

Global News on Youtube has the story.

The sea lamprey is an invasive species living in Canada's Great Lakes that had been kept under control for decades — until now. 

The lampreys have experienced a surge in numbers, and it could have a devastating ecological and economic impact on the country’s biggest lakes.  

Global's Erica Vella explains how the pandemic fuelled a population spike among the “vampire fish” and what's being done to stop them.
