Non-native marine fish caught in Florida taken to Frost Museum

Detailed Description

Dane Tolluck, an employee of the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, transfers a non-native yellow tang into a holding tank at the museum. The fish was detected off of South Florida and quickly removed by a team of divers from Frost Museum and REEF, an early detection rapid response (EDRR) effort coordinated by the USGS.
