Range extension of Amberstripe Scad Decapterus muroadsi (Teleostei: Carangidae) to the Gulf of Oman

Laith A. Jawad & Juma M. Al-Mamry

Abstract

A specimen of Amberstripe Scad Decapterus muroadsi was collected from off the city of Muscat, Oman. The fish represents the first confirmed record of the species from the northwestern quadrant of the Indian Ocean. Color patterns as well as meristic and morphometric characters match to those described for the species. Decapterus muroadsi is now found generally throughout the Indo-Pacific Ocean and southeastern Atlantic Ocean, extending from the tropics well into the temperate zone.
