Blackspot seabream is a type of ray-finned marine fish that belongs to the Sparidae family. It is also known as red sea bream. The fish is widely spread around the world and occurs in the Eastern Atlantic from Mauritania to Norway, as well as Micronesia and the western Mediterranean.

It is reddish on the back and upper flanks and becomes slightly brighter, silvery with a pink undertone on the bottom. The pectoral fin is marked with a black, almost black spot.
