|Abstract:||In this study, Craspedacusta sowerbii Lankester, 1880 a jellyfish species belonging to freshwater hydrozoan group, was reported for the first time in the field study carried out at Uzunçayır dam lake in Tunceli province on 15 September 2018. The plankton samples were obtained from two different regions of the lake using UNESCO WP2 plankton net with mesh size of 200 µm. C. sowerbii, one of the fresh water hydrozoans obtained from plankton samples, is rarely observed in man-made lakes, ponds, and reservoirs, and has not been observed earlier in the Uzunçayır dam lake. The C. sowerbii might have placed in the lake through some fishing activities which were conducted from 2010 to 2017 and/or through some sport equipment’s (i.e. boat, jetski, were brought to the region for recreational purposes).|
