Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Objective

Invasive fishes
To monitor the arrival of fishes of tropical origin into the Mediterranean Sea

About this project

Invasive fishes

Scientists from all over the Mediterranean are  concerned about the increasing arrival of fish species of tropical origin to the Mediterranean Sea. This phenomenon seems to be due to global warming.

The majority of these species arrive from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal, and some of them are highly invasive, with potential danger for native species, natural habitats and human health. It is important to monitor and record the arrival of such species, something difficult because of the occasional character of sightings, especially in the early stages of colonization. This is why citizen science is so important in this case, to gather as many data and sightings as early as possible.

How can you contribute?

Invasive Fishes

If you are a diver or a fisher, you can report the invasive species of fish you see or capture through this project. All you need to send is a picture and GPS position. In the Invasive Fishes Project website you can see pictures of the "usual suspects", but you can also report other species that you think might be invasive, or at least new in your area.

To make a report you need to sign into the project and fill in the forms, or you can sign up for a workshop from project leaders to learn more.
