Abstract
    The presence of extensive pennatulacean fields was highlighted in the southern part of the Strait of Messina, Central Mediterranean Sea, during a survey carried out by a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Pennatulaceans belonging to Pteroeides spinosum were observed from 30 to 160 m. The sea pens reached densities of =10 specimens m-2. Their main arrangement patterns are described and their dependence on the interaction between terrigenous organic input and sea-bottom currents is discussed in the light of the ecological importance of sea pen fields.
