Project Data

Since summer 2016, the invasive species Mnemiopsis leidyi (ctenophore known as "sea nut") forms huge bloom even in the north Adriatic Sea, creating serious problems for the fishing sector in the Grado and Marano lagoon. The NOCE di MARE project has created a program of observations and research aimed at investigating the dynamics of the massive proliferation of M. leidyi in the waters of the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia and assessing its impact on the ecosystem. The project was financed by the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia (regional law 14/2018, art.2, paragraphs 51-55).
