Forecasting the Pufferfish Invasion

Predicting the silver-cheeked toadfish invasion of the Mediterranean Sea: An overall habitat suitability map and an effective geographical spread map for Lagocephalus sceleratus have been produced by using cloud computing-based algorithms to merge seven machine learning approaches. Further, the potential impact of the species is reported for several Mediterranean Sea subdivisions: The major fishing areas of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Economic Exclusive Zones, and the subdivisions of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean Sea. The results suggest that without an intervention, L. sceleratus will continue its rapid spread and will likely have a high impact on fisheries.
