Abstract

This paper reports the first record of the weatherfish, Misgurnus fossilis, from the Adriatic Sea catchment area in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Intentional or unintentional introduction with economically important fish species is the probable explanation of finding M. fossilis far away from the natural distribution area of this species.
