Abstract: A case of mycobacteriosis in European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.) cultured in Turkey is described. Diseased fish were characterized by lethargy, lingering passively at the water sur- face, pale gills, and exophthalmia. Internally, grayish-white nodules were observed in the liver, spleen, and kidney. In one individual, a granulomatous mass of renal origin protruded into the abdominal cavity. The principal histological feature was the occurrence of characteristic granu- lomas with associated acid-fast, rod-shaped bacteria. This is the first confirmed case of fish mycobacteriosis in Turkey.
