Four specimens of Gadella maraldi (Moridae) were captured in the north-eastern Atlantic. One specimen was caught off the Galician coast (north-western Spain) and three individuals on the Porcupine Bank (off western Ireland). Morphometric measurements and meristic counts of one specimen were recorded. The Irish specimens constitute a new northern limit for the distribution of this species in the north-eastern Atlantic.
