Abstract

Trout fish species, Salmo cf. coruhensis, was recorded for the first time from Yalova Province. The samples were captured from the Sarıkayaboğazı stream, which is within the boundaries of the Yalova province district, 250 meters above sea level. Babka gymnotrachelus (Kessler, 1857) was caught in the same stream with Salmo cf. coruhensis. This study will provide an important contribution to the determination of the distribution of the Salmo genus in Turkey.
