The Seman is a river in western Albania. It is formed at the confluence of the rivers Osum and Devoll, a few km northwest of Kuçovë. It flows west through Fier-Shegan and Mbrostar (near Fier). It flows into the Adriatic Sea near Topojë.

In ancient times, the Seman River was known as the Apsus River.
