Özet

Two specimens of Upeneus moluccensis (Bleeker, 1855) were caught in Izmir and Candarli Bays, Aegean Sea of Turkey by bottom trawlers at depths of about 80-85 m, respectively. These fish are the first records from both areas, and this ichthyologic note constitutes also the northernmost extension range of the species in the Aegean Sea.
