For the past decade, Joe Roman has been editing Eat the Invaders! a website promoting the control of invasives one bite at a time. Roman will discuss examples of gateway invasives, species such as lionfish and exotic carp, that have been at the forefront of the invasivore movement and present evidence that such efforts can help native biodiversity. He’ll also share some recipes.
