Eleven specimens of the marbled goby Pomatoschistus marmoratus (Risso, 1810), were collected in the Tunisian coasts. The present finding is the first record for the Tunisian coasts and a proof of the presence of this species in the southern side of the Mediterranean Sea. This finding brings new data on the morphology and the ecology of this fish.
