In this survey, we search about the abundance and distribution of Gobiidae larvae in Izmir Bay between the years 2000-2004. For this purpose, seasonally obtained the ichthyoplankton sam-ples from 8 stations identified in the inner, middle and outer parts of the bay aboard the K. Piri Reis research vessel. They were shot horizontaly with a Hensen model zooplankton net which has a 200 μm mesh-opening and is 55 cm in diameter. We obtained 1210 larvae/10m³ through-out the survey and identified 4 species of Gobiidae family. These species; Gobius niger Lin-naeus, 1758, Gobius paganellus Linnaeus, 1758, Pomatoschistus minutus (Pallas, 1770) and Pomatoschistus microps (KrØyer, 1938), respectively. G. niger was found to be dominant in Izmir Bay.
