#### Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the degenerate Keller–Segel–Stokes system (KSS) in a bounded convex domain $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^2$ with smooth boundary. A particular feature is that the chemotactic sensitivity $S$ is a given parameter matrix on $\Omega \times [0,\infty)^2$ whose Frobenius norm satisfies $\lvert S(x,n,c)\rvert \leq C_S$ with some $C_S \gt 0$. It is shown that for any porous medium diffusion $m \gt 1$, the system (KSS) with nonnegative and smooth initial data possesses at least a global-in-time weak solution, which is uniformly bounded.
