Our hypothesis is that modeling features common to marine biological invasions, like the ability of the invader to disperse over long distances, will call for invasive Indo-Pacific lionfish (Pterois volitans and P. miles) control policies that diverge from those that are efficient based on models geared towards terrestrial and freshwater species, and that these differences will be economically significant.
