Abstract

Great climatic oscillations and geological activity of the Earth has set a unique position of the Adriatic Sea and its biodiversity. Digging of the Suez Canal in 1869, the Mediterranean Sea was re-linked with the Red Sea which allowed the migration of the Lessepsian organisms and settlement on areas that they don’t naturally populate. Also, their presence threatens native species and ecosystems. Except through the Suez Canal, invasive species entered the Adriatic Sea directly or indirectly, but often due to the action of man. Due to the increasing vulnerability of the Adriatic Sea more research and study is conducted in which main role have invasive species and their impact. Prevention is the best method of controlling invasive species. Good monitoring of the space and rapid response to the possible occurrence of the invasive species are the best way to preserveindigenous species of penetration of invasive species.
