Indo-Pacific lionfish (Pterois spp) have established invasive populations in the western Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Given that extirpation across their broad invaded range is impractical to achieve, resource managers could designate these predators as candidates for “functional” eradication, setting quantitative targets for suppression efforts at priority locations. In the March issue of Frontiers, Green and Grosholz explain how this strategy may minimize the species’ adverse ecological impacts and recolonization.Read more
