As a follow-up to Jim's email, the lionfish discussion was/is quite active on the gcfinet distribution list.  To access the archival messages from the list, go to http://listserv.gcfi.org/scripts/wa-GCFI.exe?A0=GCFINET and search on lionfish. Together, these two list provide a substantial amount of information related to the spread of lionfish in the Caribbean.

Dr. Anthony Picciolo of NOAA's Coral Reef Information System (CoRIS) has
developed a professional exchange about the IndoPacific lionfish
invasion of the U.S. south Atlantic sea coast and Caribbean Sea.  The
exchange is accessible at: _http://coris.noaa.gov/exchanges/lionfish/_
and focuses on the dynamic discussions about lionfishes that took place
on the Coral-List server between December 2008 and October 2009. 
Participants in /the //discussion thread were concerned with the sources
of introduction of lionfishes into the Atlantic Ocean, the increased
number of sightings of at least two species of lionfishes in various
locations, the nature of threats posed by these fishes to Atlantic coral
reefs, and what protective or control measures could be applied to
reduce these threats./ 

To submit questions or comments about this or other professional
exchanges, please contact CoRIS at: coris at noaa.gov.
