    The current status of marine fishes distributed along the Turkish coasts is reviewed and an updated checklist including 512 species is presented. In this study, 5 species are recorded for the first time from Turkey (Lepidion lepidion (Risso, 1810); Bathophilus nigerrimus Giglioli, 1882; Gonostoma denudatum Rafinesque, 1810; Solea aegyptiaca Chabanaud, 1927; and Gobius roulei de Buen, 1928), while 7 species are new to the Turkish Aegean Sea coast (Notacanthus bonaparte Risso, 1840; Nettastoma melanurum Rafinesque, 1810; Apletodon dentatus (Facciolà, 1887); Apletodon incognitus Hofrichter & Patzner, 1997; Callionymus filamentosus Valenciennes, 1837; Cynoglossus sinusarabici (Chabanaud, 1931); Torquigener flavimaculosus Hardy & Randall, 1983) and 3 species are newly reported from the Levantine coast (Dysomma brevirostre (Facciolà, 1887); Apletodon dentatus (Facciolà, 1887); Zebrus zebrus (Risso, 1827)).
