Cover Story (view full-size image): Short text: Cnidarians are one of the most problematical groups in marine finfish aquaculture, contributing significantly to the occlusion of the cage nets, but also dramatically aﬀecting farmed species health. In situ net cleaning processes traditionally used in aquaculture cages causes hydrozoan fragments containing stinging cells to be freely released in the water column. Equally, the development of hydroids colonies on nets lead to seasonal release of hundred of free-living propagules inside the cages. The current study was focused on the hydroid assemblage from SW Mediterranean aquaculture facility. The seasonal occurrence, growth rates and sexual reproductive periods of potential harmful cnidarian species have been identified, providing key information for setting optimal farming protocols and schedules of aquaculture cage management.
