@DBarriosONeill @JohnFBruno @squatinaivalina https://t.co/xTf54X8Fih This is the one, also I think that the fact that you do get such huge aggregations of lionfish in a small area points to high impact in itself - I don’t think you can separate impact from abundance

But such challenges should be made on the basis of careful experimentation/observation, sound methodology and conservative interpretation of findings (6/6) https://t.co/39lniWHw6Q

IMPORTANT commentary for management of the #lionfish invasion! Let us set the record straight: maintaining low densities of lionfish keeps their effects on native communities in check. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD: https://t.co/BUl6ePrhNW https://t.co/EbLEgb0lDS
