  • Ana Canas (a1), Paulo Vasconcelos (a1), Pedro G. Lino (a1) and Miguel N. Santos (a1)


This note reports the main morphometric and meristic parameters of a male Bermuda sea chub (Khyphosus sectator) caught off the Algarve coast (southern Portugal). This is the first occurrence of this tropical fish species in Portuguese continental waters, and the second and northernmost capture ever reported for the north-eastern Atlantic.
