A single female specimen (724 mm SL) of Japanese snook, Lates japonicus Katayama and Taki, 1984, was corrected in the mouth of the Ajigawa river, Osaka Bay, Japan on 20th August 2018, representing the second record of the species from Osaka Bay. The present record implicates that this fish was not resident but appeared accidentally in Osaka bay, because the bay lacks no suitable over-wintering habitat for L. japonicus.
