non-indigenous species in reef systems

Looking for some quick responses to a simple query.  Please respond directly
to me.  

My own sense as a coral reef ecologist is that the issue of environmental
perturbations due to non-indigenous, or "invasive" species is not in the
front line of environmental problems in reef systems.

Is there any evidence that this impression is way off base.

Thanks for any input,

Phil Taylor
