In a Caribbean island, a couple is found dead inside a sunken ship. The scuba diving instructor of the local resort Anne Kimbrough breaks in the morgue with her acquaintance Tyler Sherman and finds that the bodies have been eaten in many parts. They have one night stand and Tyler tells her that he is a biochemist that have developed a specimen of genetically modified piranha capable of flying to be the ultimate weapon.

- Guess whose coming to dinner?
- Credit for directing this film was given to James Cameron. Most of the work was actually performed by Ovidio G. Assonitis, the film's producer and prolific film-maker. Assonitis was dissatisfied with Cameron's progress after the first week and took over. According to "Dreaming Aloud," a biography of James Cameron by Christopher Heard, Cameron did do the shooting for this movie, but was not allowed to see his footage and was not involved in editing. He broke into the editing room and cut his own version, but was caught and Assonitis re-cut it again.
The piranhas in this sequel developed an additional skill which they did not have in Piranha (1978). They could fly.
In an interview, James Cameron said, "I believe 'The Spawning' was the finest flying piranha movie ever made."
In an interview, James Cameron said this movie gets better halfway through when seen at the drive-in with a six pack of beer.
One of only two James Cameron films not to be scored by James Horner or Brad Fiedel. Stelvio Cipriani (as Steve Powder) did the score for this film.
