Tamsouri M. N., Benchoucha S., Idhalla M., El Aamri F. 2019. Etrumeus golanii (Actinopterygii: Clupeiformes: Dussumieriidae) a new Lessepsian migrant recorded in Morocco, Alboran Sea (south-west Mediterranean). Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 49 (1): 43–47
The occurrence of a Lessepsian migrant, the Golani round herring, Etrumeus golanii DiBattista, Randall et Bowen, 2012, is reported here for the ﬁrst time from the Alboran Sea (south-west Mediterranean). On May 2018, twenty individuals were caught by a commercial purse-seiner off Fnideq (Morocco), but five females and two males, were kept by the fisherman for further analyses. This new ﬁnding confirms the expansion of this Lessepsian migrant throughout the Mediterranean Sea.
