Abstract The communication reports a case (RTLA 3618) of squamous cell carcinoma from the gulf menhaden, Brevoortia patronus Goode, the first tumor reported from the species. The affected fish was collected in a gill net on 15 January 1986 in the northern Gulf of Mexico near Round Island, Mississippi. It weighed 122 g and was 170 mm in standard length. One small area of the tumor periphery was reminiscent of epithelial pearl formation common in mammalian squamous cell carcinomas. Some skeletal muscle and bone was present in the tumor mass.
