Abstract
    In order to determine the molluscan fauna of the eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey, benthic research was conducted during 1998-1999 at depths ranging to 30 m. It was determined that Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin, 1791), Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg, 1793), and Saccostrea commercialis (Iredale & Roughley, 1933) have established dense populations at some localities. Among these species, C. virginica and S. commercialis are new records for the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
