Dear All

In my questionning about the origin of the large mats of Sargassum algae 
in the Lesser Antilles, I am also wondering about invasive species, 
particularly the lionfish in our Caribbean region.
Does anyone know about the potential dispersal of this species using 
mats of floating materials, particularly sargassum, as we know that many 
species develop under these rafts across the ocean?

We have not been looking at the associated species of these mats at 
first, but it might be interesting to do a bit of work, or at least know 
about this potential way of introduction for new species.
