Pais A., Merella P., Follesa M.C., Motomura H. 2009. North-easternmost record of Halosaurus ovenii (Actinopterygii: Notacanthiformes: Halosauridae) in the Mediterranean Sea, with notes on its biology. Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 39 (1): 33-37.

Abstract. A single adult female specimen of Halosaurus ovenii Johnson, 1864 was captured by trammel nets at a depth of about 200 m off the coast of Arbatax (Sardinia, Italy) in early April 2007. Macroscopic and microscopic analysis of the gonad showed a postspawning ovary. This is the fourth documented capture of this fish in the Mediterranean Sea, representing the north-easternmost record for this species in this geographic area. Furthermore, the present specimen was fished at the shallowest depth ever recorded before.

Keywords: Halosaurus ovenii, new record, Mediterranean, Sardinia
