Abstract
The purpose of the Mytilos project is the development of an interregional costal water quality monitoring network through biological integrators (mussels), for the sustainable protection of the Western Mediterranean Sea.

This 3-year project was launched in January 2004 and is an integral part of the INTERREG III B MEDOCC programme

Mytilos is actively involved in the integration, standardisation and harmonisation of activities among Member States and neighbouring countries. Member countries associated with this project are France, Italy, Greece, Spain ; third countries associated with Mytilos are Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.

Objectives :
The purpose of the Mytilos project is the development of an interregional costal water quality monitoring network through biological integrators (mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis), for the sustainable protection of the Western Mediterranean Sea.

This evaluation and monitoring network of the coastal contamination carries out an active biomonitoring through caged mussels. This caging method has been implemented on the French coasts since 1996 (100 cages).

This goal will be achieved through :

  • setting up a network of partners with the same methodology,
  • implementing a standard protocol in the Western Mediterranean, including its dissemination among the Maghreb partners,
  • evaluating the chemical quality of the Mediterranean Sea as identified in the Framework Directive in the field of water policy
