Service Description: Verified reports of lionfishes (Pterois volitans, Pterois miles) in the Gulf of Mexico from US Geological Survey's Nonindigenous Aquatic Species database. The first confirmed specimens of lionfish taken from the Gulf of Mexico were in December 2009. Sightings of lionfishes are becoming common in the northern Gulf of Mexico, especially associated with artifical reefs (including oil/gas platforms). The invasion of lionfishes is unprecedented. Lionfishes are the first nonnative marine fishes to establish in the region and they have spread with remarkable speed. Scientists are concerned that predatory lionfishes may have detrimental impacts on native fauna.
