A total of 112 species of Ostracoda was identified as a result of seasonal sampling (four periods a year corresponding to the seasons) at 16 stations in Bandırma Bay and Erdek Bay (Sea of Marmara, Turkey). Fifty-five of these represent new records for the fauna of the Sea of Marmara, and 18 are new records for the Recent marine fauna of Turkey. The number of ostracode species found in Erdek Bay was generally higher than that found in Bandırma Bay, except in spring. Herein the ostracode fauna of the region is documented and its structure discussed.
