Pinna nobilis, in search for the surviving fan mussel population in Greece

The poster was presented in the 15th International Congress of Zoogeography and Ecology of Greece and Adjacent Regions (15th ICZEGAR), hosted by the University of the Aegean, Department of Marine Sciences from 12 to 15 October 2022 in Mytilini.

To track the progress of the Pinna nobilis mass mortality event in Greece by September 2022, the present study attempted to assess the status of fan mussel populations in the Aegean and Ionian Seas by means of underwater visual surveys.
