Abstract

A single specimen of Dusky Grouper Epinephelus marginatus (Lowe, 1834) on 14 November 2021 at a depth of about 10 m from the southwestern Black Sea (Amasra, Turkey) was captured by a fisherman with fishnet. In this study, dusky grouper Epinephelus marginatus was recorded for the first time from the Black Sea as a new Mediterranean species for the Black Sea fish fauna.
