Dear Mediterranean Lionfish Group friends.

I am collaborating with Prof. Jen Solomon, from Colorado State University, and several of her graduate students on a study of perceptions regarding market-based approaches to control of invasive Lionfish.  This follows a workshop on the subject which we organized at the last International Congress on Conservation Biology, in Colombia.

We are reaching out to a mix of marine scientists, conservation managers, fishers, and others who have an interest in invasive Lionfish to capture their thoughts and perceptions on the subject.

I would like to invite you to complete a survey that will help us with this research. It is accessible here:  We would like to ensure coverage from groups that are addressing the Lionfish invasion in the Mediterranean Region, so your inputs will be particularly valuable.

Best Regards
