Abstract

[The spring presence of two individuals of the Sea lamprey, Petromyzon marinus, in the River Mignone near Tarquinia (Northern Lazio) could highlight a new Italian reproductive site of this rare and endangered species. This exceptional possibility could certainly be favored by the good quality of both the waters of the Mignone, and the environmental context of the record, but would require the urgent equipment of the barrier of Le Mole with a fish ladder in order to allow the sea lamprey’s upstream migration towards the areas of the upper course, even more suitable for their reproduction].
