A specimen of Lutjanus argentimaculatus (Forsskål, 1775) was caught on 4 October 2018 by a commercial gillnet fishery from shallow waters of the Gulf of Izmir, northern Aegean Sea, at a depth of 8 m. The presently reported study constitutes the first record of the mangrove red snapper for the Aegean Sea but also the third record for the Mediterranean Sea.
