To evaluate and monitor the presence of non-indigenous species (NIS) in harbors and marinas, Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) were deployed in two sites, a commercial harbor and a touristic marina in the port of Ravenna (Italy, northern Adriatic Sea), in two seasons and left about 2 m underwater for three months. Significant differences in sessile and vagile community structures were found between sites and times. Out of 44 taxa identified, two sessile and five vagile NIS were found. Among them, the polychaete Schistomeringos cf. japonica (Annenkova, 1937) could represent the first Mediterranean record if confirmed by further analyses.

Abstract

To evaluate and monitor the presence of non-indigenous species (NIS) in harbors and marinas, Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) were deployed in two sites, a commercial harbor and a touristic marina in the port of Ravenna (Italy, northern Adriatic Sea), in two seasons and left about 2 m underwater for three months. Significant differences in sessile and vagile community structures were found between sites and times. Out of 44 taxa identified, two sessile and five vagile NIS were found. Among them, the polychaete Schistomeringos cf. japonica (Annenkova, 1937) could represent the first Mediterranean record if confirmed by further analyses.
