Abstract

New records of the rapid spread and establishment of the Erythraean alien apogonid Cheilodipterus novemstriatus along the Israeli coast are presented. In October 2012, a school numbering hundreds of adult specimens was photographed off Rosh HaNikra – a finding that confirms the presence of an established population of the species along the Levantine coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
