Jim Hart: James is a screenwriter with numerous writing and producing credits including Hook!, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Contact, Sahara, August Rush, Crossbones, Epic, The Hot Zone, The HartChart Story Mapping Tool and others. While working on a lionfish thriller screenplay he became interested in the impact that Lionfish are having on reef systems and on people as a geo-political and social problem in the small island nations of the Caribbean. Hart lives in NYC when he is not diving.
Stacy Frank Lionfish University: Stacy has been an avid SCUBA diver since 1973 and lives to dive. She has a master’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and lives in the Carolinas with her husband.

Stacy firmly believes that now is the time to face this nemesis.
