Listen: Pacu, the Aggressive Immigrant Fish

A fish with human-like teeth. A close cousin of the piranha. Are Indian waters being invaded by this predatory foreign fish? Are these aquatic immigrants destructive and capable of wrecking their ecological surroundings? Could they destroy the other fish around them? Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian investigate invasive species of fish in this fascinating new episode of The Intersection.
