Viewed : 3952 - Downloaded : 2763 Information on the distribution of the Deep-water rose shrimp - P. longirostris - in the South Adriatic Sea (Mediterranean Sea) is reported. Trawl-surveys (MEDITS project) provided raw data both on catches and sea bottom temperature. Spatial distribution of abundance indices and bottom temperature values has been mapped by means of GIS techniques. Results underlined differential distribution of the species according to geographical zones and depths, and the possible influence of water temperature at sea bottoms.
