Abstract

In this the striped seabream Lithognathus mormyrus (Linnaeus, 1758) was reported for the first time and considered as new geographic record from the northern part of Turkish coasts. The observation points and sampling localities were given with some ecological remarks. The morphological features of this species were examined. The relationship between variations in habitat structure along the Turkish coasts of Black Sea and the observation frequencies of the new geographical record of striped seabream L. mormyrus was discussed.
