A total of 89 Baillon's wrasse, Symphodus (Crenilabrus) bailloni, were collected during a trawl survey of the Solent (south coast of England) between 11 and 15 September 2002. Specimens ranged between 3 and 16 cm total length, with clear modes at 6 and 15 cm, and were found throughout the survey area. Symphodus bailloni is reported to be a Lusitanean species that is rare in the English Channel, but was the most common species of wrasse captured during this survey.
