dc.description.abstractThe occurrence of the scyphozoan Cassiopea andromeda is reported from the Maltese Islands, where a sizable aggregation was found in Marsamxett Harbour. This is the first record of this circumtropical species from the central Mediterranean Sea, hitherto known from the Levantine and Aegean basins. It is suggested that the most likely vector responsible for transporting this species to the Maltese Islands is shipping.en_GB
