The capture of larvae of Palaemon macrodactylus off Mallorca (Balearic Islands) has been recently reported as evidence of a potential presence of a population of this species in the Mediterranean Sea. Photos of this species, taken during dives in the Sacca di Goro (northern Adriatic) were published in the same year, but no specimen could be collected at that time. Herein, we report the capture in 2013 of numerous individuals of the oriental shrimp, including ovigerous females, both in the Sacca di Goro and in the Lagoon of Grado and Marano (northern Adriatic Sea, Italy), confirming the existence of a well-established population of this species in the Mediterranean Sea.

Lipophilic toxins were analysed in shellfish along eastern Adriatic coast during one-year period. Samples which provided a positive mouse bioassay test (MBA) for lipophilic toxins were analysed by LC-MS/MS. Results of LC-MS/MS analyses revealed okadaates (OAs), yessotoxins (YTXs) and gymnodimine (GYM). YTXs were the most common in all investigated areas, but only OAs were identified in concentration above regulatory limit. Slightly higher toxin content was recorded in shellfish from northern Adriatic Sea in comparison with other investigated areas. Seven potentially toxic phytoplankton species known as OAs producers were recorded: Dinophysis acuminata, Dinophysis acuta, Dinophysis caudata, Dinophysis fortii, Dinophysis sacculus, Dinophysis tripos and Phalacroma rotundatum; as well as Lingulodinium polyedrum, Go-nyaulax spinifera and Protoceratium reticulatum known as causative organisms for YTXs. OAs content in shellfish was associated with presence of D. caudata and D. sacculus in seawater. Species L. polyedrum and G. spinifera were determined concurrently with YTXs in shellfish. © by PSP.
