Abstract

Present study reports the first record of occurrence of the Red alfonsino, Centroberyx rubricaudus in the Indian waters (Andaman Islands). This fish has been reported earlier only from the southern coast of Taiwan. A single specimen measuring 215 mm TL was collected from a vessel operated in the Bay of Bengal (Bamboo Flat) of India during March 2010. The specimen has been compared with the earlier reports and the other similar species.
