Results indicate that lionfish have reached a wide distribution within the focal area.
Preliminary stomach content analysis shows that lionfish have a generalist diet, eating mostly benthic fishes by weight and volume.
Experimental removals of lionfish as part of a before-after-control-impact (BACI) design are underway to help assess the predatory impacts of lionfish on the native hardbottom community.
