Research Profile: Stephanie Green

January 26, 2011

SFU PhD student Stephanie Green appeared on the Dan Rather Reports show this week to discuss the invasion of lionfish into Western Atlantic and Caribbean waters.

Lionfish are native to the Indo-Pacific, and were likely introduced to the waters off the Florida coast by pet-owners who released them into the ocean. The estimated millions of lionfish can be traced back to fewer than ten original female fish.

Green says,  ”You wouldn’t believe the appetites on these fish. We’ve documented almost 60 different species of Caribbean fish in lionfish stomachs,” she said in a news release promoting the show. “So, the impacts of lionfish could be very severe.”
