Abstract

To date, three alien species of the cardinal fish genus Apogon (Lacépède, 1801) have been reported from the Mediterranean Sea. Here we report the first record of a fourth Indo-Pacific species, A. fasciatus, from the Mediterranean coast of Israel. The invasion, within three years, of three alien cardinal fish species of Indo-Pacific origin of the soft bottom infralittoral in the eastern Mediterranean is discussed.
