This study was carried out to determine amphipod species of Bozcaada Island (NE Aegean Sea) and some ecological features within their habitat. Samples were collected from 32 stations, situated at the depth of 0.5-35 m by dredge, drift net, bottom trawl and scoop net during 2000- 2001 years. In the investigation 46 amphipod species belonging to 16 femilies were determined. Microdeutopus similis Myers, 1977 was reported for the first time from the entire Turkish Seas. Moreover, Apherusa mediterranea Chevreux, 1911 was a new record for the Aegean Sea coasts of Turkey.
