Large-scale invasion of western Atlantic mesophotic reefs by lionfish potentially undermines culling-based management

Abstract:

The detrimental effects of invasive lionfishes (Pterois volitans and Pterois miles) on western Atlantic shallow reefs are well documented, including declines in coral cover and native fish populations, with disproportionate predation on critically endangered reef fish in some locations. Yet despite individuals reaching depths >100 m, the role of mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs; reefs 30-150 m) in lionfish ecology has not been addressed. With lionfish control programs in most invaded loca...
