Abstract

Fifteen specimens of the big-scale sand smelt, Atherina boyeri were caught by a single trawl haul with a net mesh size of 3 mm on February 2017 from the Seyhan Dam Reservoir (South Anatolia, Adana/Turkey). In this study the big-scale sand smelt, A. boyeri, was recorded for the first time in the Seyhan Dam Reservoir. In addition, some morphometric and meristic measurements of A. boyeri were given and these values were compared to populations in two different lakes. Furthermore, the possible ecological effects of A. boyeri on Seyhan Dam Reservoir were briefly discussed.
