Abstract

A single specimen of Diplodus sargus with 40.5 cm in total length and 1000.00 g in total weight was caught off İbrice Bight (Saros Bay) with handline by a commercial fisherman on 25 June 2018. The mentioned sizes are the maximum length and weight values of the species for the Aegean Sea and the other Turkish coasts; however, it is the second-largest length ever reported in the Mediterranean Basin. 

Keywords: Diplodus sargus; White seabream; Maximum length, Saros Bay, Aegean Sea
