Tropical Fish Flock to New Vacation Paradise: Rhode Island

Snowy GrouperAn unusually large number of tropical fish have been spotted this summer in Rhode Island waters by divers, fishermen and environmentalists. Among the fish seen so far: juvenile orange filefish, snowy grouper and lookdowns. A local lobsterman pulled up a large trigger fish in one of his traps. 

Comments

Why would these tropic fish be there? Aren't these waters too cold for such fish?
