Coll M., Santojanni A., Arneri E., Palomera I. An ecosystem model of the northern and Central Adriatic Sea: analysis of ecosystem structure and fishing impacts. In: Biologia Marina Mediterranea, vol. 13 (1) pp. 467 - 471. SocietÓ Italiana di Biologia Marina, 2006.
A trophic mass-balance model of the Northern and Central Adriatic Sea was developed to characterize the classical food web functioning and structure and to describe the ecosystem impacts of fishing. Important features of the ecosystem were highlighted, such as the key role of coupled pelagic-benthic production of plankton, benthic invertebrates and detritus, and the importance of small pelagic fishes within the system. Fishing impacts are high in the ecosystem.
