First record of the Northern brown shrimp, Farfantepenaeus aztecus (Ives, 1891) (Crustacea: Decapoda: Penaeidae) in the South Adriatic Sea, Montenegro
A single adult female specimen of the Northern brown shrimp, Farfantepenaeus aztecus , a species native to the western Atlantic coasts, was caught in Boka kotorska bay (southern Adriatic Sea) on 19Expand

Non-indigenous macrozoobenthic species on hard substrata of selected harbours in the adriatic sea.
The intense shipping traffic characterising the Adriatic Sea favours the spread of marine organisms. Yet, a study of 12 Adriatic ports (4 on the western side and 8 on the eastern side of the basin)Expand

Effects of bottom trawling on the benthic assemblages in the south Adriatic Sea (Montenegro)
Trawling remains a controversial method of fishing due to the perceived lack of selectivity of the trawl net, which can result in the capture of a huge quantity and diversity of non-target species,Expand
