Six samples of damselfish catches with a total of 833 individuals from the channel area (Hvar channel) and open waters (the region of Vis and Biąevo Islands) of the central Adriatic were analysed with respect to their number of vertebrae. The vertebral number of damselfish ranged from 24 to 27. The mode of 26 vertebrae was observed in all the examined samples. Total mean value of damselfish vertebral number from both regions was 25.74.
