The maximum length, weight, and age information of living things in an ecosystem are necessary for population dynamics and stock assessment studies. Hence, the recording of such data may be beneficial for scientific databases for life history and fisheries science. The common two-banded seabream (Diplodus vulgaris Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1817) is a widespread demersal marine fish, which belongs to the Sparidae family and inhabits down to 90 m depth. Because it is a demanded seafood, it has commercial importance and usually available in the fish market almost every month of the year in Turkey. A single specimen of common two-banded seabream with 31.9 cm in total length and 467.00 g in total weight, which was caught off İbrice Bight (Saroz Bay) with handline by a professional fisherman on 12 June 2015, was obtained from a fishmonger. This study aims to present the maximum size record of this species for the Aegean Sea with Turkish waters.
