Fort Lauderdale-Davie, Fla. – The marine industry is a vital component of the South Florida lifestyle. To that end, Nova Southeastern University researcher Matthew Johnston, Ph.D., has been studying the impact invasive species have on our marine ecosystem. One species in particular – the lionfish – has been a focus of his studies at NSU’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography. His work and insight was recently featured as part of a National Geographic story on this very subject.
