Abstract
    Twelve specimens of the western Atlantic shrimp, Farfantepenaeus aztecus (Ives, 1891), were caught between December 2009 and June 2010 by bottom trawl off Serik in Antalya Bay, Turkey. The species has probably been introduced in the eastern Mediterranean with ballast water. This is the first record of F. aztecus, and the second of a western Atlantic shrimp in the Mediterranean Sea.
