Two freshwater fish species, Phoxinus phoxinus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859, were recorded for the first time from Lake Sapanca Basin. P. phoxinus were captured from Mahmudiye stream while G. holbrooki was captured from Maşukiye stream. The measural and meristic characters of the specimens were similar to those reported elsewhere for the species. P. phoxinus known as predator of trout’s eggs was caught in big numbers in same stream with Salmo trutta macrostigma. The inclusion of these species has increased the species list of fish fauna of Lake Sapanca.
