Optimum lionfish yield: a non-traditional management concept for invasive lionfish (Pterois spp.) fisheries

BIOLOGICAL INVASIONS, 23(3), 795–810.

By: A. Bogdanoff n, K. Shertzer*, C. Layman n, J. Chapman*, M. Fruitema*, J. Solomon*, J. Sabattis*, S. Green*, J. Morris*

author keywords: Age structure; Belize; Fishery management; Invasive species; Maximum sustainable yield; Optimum lionfish yield; Population model
TL;DR: The model indicates that lionfish in Belize are biologically robust to fishing pressure, which corroborates previous findings and support continued establishment of (managed) commercial lionfish fisheries throughout the invaded range to provide an alternative sustainable fishery resource and serve as a means of national- and international-level control.

By: S. Archer n, E. Hensel n & C. Layman n

author keywords: Context-dependent; Ecosystem function; Interspecific interactions; Nutrient loading; Porifera; Productivity; Seagrass

TL;DR: It is suggested that conserving community biomass alone may be sufficient to sustain certain biogeochem processes, but when considering conservation of multiple simultaneous biogeochemical processes, management efforts should focus first on species richness. (via Semantic Scholar)

Fish movement from nursery bays to coral reefs: a matter of size?

Diet variation of a generalist fish predator, grey snapper Lutjanus griseus, across an estuarine gradient: trade-offs of quantity for quality?

JOURNAL OF FISH BIOLOGY, 85(2), 264–277.

author keywords: compensatory feeding; food web; growth; prey quality; prey quantity

TL;DR: Diet, prey quality and growth for a generalist fish predator, grey snapper Lutjanus griseus, at five sites across an estuarine gradient in the Loxahatchee River estuary indicate that L.griseus may be able to compensate for lower quality prey upstream by consuming more, and thus individuals are able to maintain similar levels of energy balance and growth rates across the estuarist gradient.

author keywords: artificial reef; competition; condition; food web; group behavior; Haemulon plumierii; seagrass
MeSH headings : Animals; Conservation of Natural Resources; Coral Reefs; Environmental Monitoring; Fisheries; Fishes / physiology; Population Density
TL;DR: Evidence of inverse density dependence is found, where individual condition was positively related to conspecific density; landscape context had little effect, suggesting over-harvest may have detrimental effects on wild populations that extend beyond mere reductions in population size, especially for group-living species.

author keywords: Bahamas mosquitofish; food webs; individual specialization; niche variation; predation; RNA/DNA ratios; stable isotopes
TL;DR: It is shown that fragmentation-induced release from predation led to increased G. hubbsi population densities, which consequently led to lower mean growth rates, likely as a result of higher intraspecific competition for food, suggesting that habitat fragmentation can greatly impact the ecology of resilient populations.

By: Z. Jud* & C. Layman*

author keywords: Fish; Growth; Home range; Invasive species; Movement; Tagging
TL;DR: In systems where lionfish exhibit extremely high site fidelity and small maximum ranges, localized population control may be feasible, since lionfish removed from a given habitat would be replaced largely through larval recruitment rather than migration of older individuals, but may be less effective if lion fish exhibit greater movement and lower site fidelity in other invaded systems.
