Abstract

The presence of Ostreopsis ovata, a dinoflagellate, characteristic of the tropical and subtropical seas and particularly of ciguatera endemic areas, was reported in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Our results showed the persistence of this species at two stations from August to October 1994. Some observations led us to believe that O. ovata was probably indigenous in this area and not introduced by shipping with bilge water or ballast water.
