Abstract

The flatfish four-spot megrim (Lepidorhombus boscii) was registered in Norwegian waters, both in trawl catches and video observations. The records represent a considerable northward extension of the species. Specimens of up to 49 cm were measured, representing also a new maximum size for this species. The number of registrations has increased within the last years, indicating that the species got more common in this area.
