    About This Project

    We hypothesize that invasive lionfish settle in typical nursery habitats before searching out deeper, colder water. We will use otolith microchemistry to determine the differences between the most recent residency and the settlement location of lionfish individuals throughout Floridian waters.

    Understanding their post-settlement behavior may help us control their population, limit future spread of the species, and decrease the negative influence of lionfish on native ecosystems.
