Abstract: We report the first record of Squaretail kob, Argyrosomus thorpei from the coast of the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh. The sample specimens were collected from Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh on 22 January 2016. Morphometric and meristic studies were performed for taxonomic identification. Genomic DNA was extracted from tissue samples and mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase Subunit I (COI) gene was amplified for molecular characterization of this species. The morphometric and meristic data and DNA barcoding confirm the presence of A. thorpei in Bangladesh. This report updates the geographical distribution for this species confirming its presence in the coastal region of Bangladesh.
