Marine protected areas (MPAs) conserve diversity and abundance of fish communities. According to the biotic resistance hypothesis, communities with higher diversity and abundance should resist invasions better. To test this idea, the presence of lionfish in two Caribbean MPAs was studied: Parque Nacional Guanahacabibes (PNG) in Cuba and Parque Nacional Arrecifes de Xcalak (PNAX) in Mexico. Selection of these MPAs was based on both their different levels of success with enforcement and different abundances of native fish, with a more abundant native fish fauna at PNG. Underwater visual censuses were used to evaluate both the native fish structure and composition and at the same time distribution and abundance of lionfish. The abundance of potential predators on lionfish was also measured to determine possible effects of lionfish on both the abundance and the size of its prey and competitors. Lionfish showed higher abundance and larger size in PNG compared to PNAX, even though its probable competitors and predators were also more abundant and larger in PNG. Prey abundance and size decreased after the invasion. No correlation was detected between potential predators and lionfish, which might indicate natural predation is not substantial. In PNAX, lower abundance of prey, potential competitors and predators can also be attributed to historical overfishing, but this did not provide an advantage to lionfish. Lionfish were less abundant and reached smaller sizes in PNAX compared to PNG. This work confirms the effectiveness of lionfish culling at PNAX, but does not support the biotic resistence hypothesis that native fish might have controlled this invasive species.

Resumen en español

El pez león (Pterois volitans) invadió la región del Caribe y tiene el potencial de alterar la composición y estructura de las comunidades de peces en los arrecifes coralinos. El objetivo de este estudio fue analizar los índices de diversidad en las comunidades de peces nativos en sitios invadidos por el pez león en dos áreas marinas protegidas (AMP) del Caribe y compararlos con datos previos a la invasión. En ambas AMP, Parque Nacional Guanahacabibes (PNG) en el occidente de Cuba y Parque Nacional Arrecifes de Xcalak (PNAX) en el S de Quintana Roo, se realizaron censos visuales de las especies de peces en hábitats durante las épocas de seca y lluvia del 2013-2015. Se evaluaron nueve sitios, mediante conteos estacionarios. Se registró mayor riqueza de especies en el PNG (43.47±5.14) que en el PNAX (40.22±4.96). No se observaron diferencias entre épocas en ninguna de las AMP. El pez león se ubicó entre las especies más abundantes del PNG. La abundancia media en el PNG (0.76 ± 1.25) fue mayor a la registrada en el PNAX (0.19±0.46). La diversidad disminuyó después de la llegada del pez león en un solo sitio del PNG y en dos sitios del PNAX, pero al parecer estos resultados están más asociados al efecto de la pesca que a la presencia del pez león. A partir de los resultados y asumiendo que los cambios en las comunidades de peces por el pez león podrían no detectarse aún, recomendamos seguir los monitoreos de los descriptores comunitarios para detectar cambios futuros en las comunidades de peces.

Resumen en inglés

Lionfish (Pterois volitans) invaded the Caribbean region with the potential to alter the composition and structure of native coral reef fish communities. The objective of this study was to analyze the diversity indices of these fish communities potentially affected by lionfish predation and to compare with pre-invasion data. The study was undertaken in two Caribbean marine protected areas (MPAs): Guanahacabibes National Park (PNG) in W Cuba and Xcalak Reefs National Park (PNAX) in S Quintana Roo. We carried out visual censuses of fish species in reef habitats during the dry and rainy seasons of the period 2013-2015. For this, nine sites were defined and evaluated using stationary counts. Our results showed higher species richness (43.47 ± 5.14) and mean abundance (0.76 ± 1.25) in PNG than in PNAX (40.22 ± 4.96, 0.19 ± 0.46, respectively). Diversity decreased after the arrival of lionfish in a single site of PNG and in two sites of the PNAX, but apparently, these results are more related to the fishing activity effect than to the lionfish presence. Based on the results and assuming that changes in the native fish communities by lionfish may not yet be detected, we recommend to continue the monitoring community descriptions in order to detect future changes in native fish communities.
