Fricke R., Golani D., Appelbaum-Golani B., Zajonz U. 2020. New record of the Red scorpionfish, Scorpaena scrofa (Actinopterygii: Scorpaeniformes: Scorpaenidae) from deep waters off Israel, Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea. Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 50 (3): 357–362.

Abstract. This study examines the distribution of the red scorpionfish, Scorpaena scrofa Linnaeus, 1758, in the Red Sea, in order to get a better picture of the distribution and dispersal of this species. The species is recorded for the first time from the Gulf of Aqaba, based on a specimen collected off Eilat, Israel at a depth of 400 m. This finding also confirms the occurrence of the species in the Red Sea and links up with a recent record from Saya de Malha Bank, western Indian Ocean.

Keywords: biodiversity, scorpionfishes, new record, Red Sea, distribution
