Abstract

In July 1999, green mussels were seen for the first time at Tampa ElectricCompany's (TECO) Gannon Station Power Plant (Gulf of Mexico, Hillsborough Bay portion of Tampa Bay, western coast of Florida) during routine maintenance of the seawater intake system. The mussels were identified as Perna viridis (Linnaeus 1758) based on shell and anatomical characters. This identification has been confirmed by cytological analysis. Perna viridis had previously not been found in the United States or in the Gulf of Mexico. Perna viridis is a native species in the Indian and Pacific Oceans and was discovered in the Caribbean Sea in Trinidad in 1990 and in Jamaica in 1998. The populations are widespread locally and well established; the largest specimencollected was estimated to be 15 months of age. This is the second speciesof Perna introduced to the Gulf of Mexico, joining Perna perna (Linnaeus 1758). which was discovered in Texas in 1990. Since the initial discovery ofPerna viridis in Tampa Bay, range surveys have found it as far north as John's Pass in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida and as far south as Boca Grande, Charlotte County, Florida.
