Abstract: The Strait of Sicily is a major hydrodynamic, biogeographical and geological transition zone within the Mediterranean Sea, considered as the boundary between the Western and Eastern sub- basins. During the last few decades, an increasing number of marine species native of either the Atlantic or the Indo-Pacific Oceans have been recorded in this area by researchers from Malta, Italy and Tunisia. Here we list recently recorded fish from the Strait of Sicily, illustrating suitable methodologies for their detection, and advocating the need of transnational monitoring networks.
