His broad perspective includes consulting numerous state, federal, and international boards, panels, and working groups on management of invasive lionfish. His current focus is on addressing the lionfish invasion including developing and implementing research, outreach, training, and control programs throughout the region. He has helped develop many of the lionfish control programs and practices throughout the invaded range.
