The main goal of the multidisciplinary MediOs project was to acquire and analyze pertinent scientific knowledge in fields as diverse as ecology, biology, chemistry, epidemiology or socio-economics concerning the occurrence of species belonging to genus Ostreopsis (toxic benthic dinoflagellates) in the Mediterranean. The economic impact of Ostreopsis was estimated, based on the intensity and frequency of blooms. Results obtained allowed science-based recommendations concerning the management of risk, with suggestions to optimize environmental surveys, to initiate a food risk survey, and to structure actions at the national level.
