Abstract
    Two living specimens of the Atlantic croaker Micropogonias undulatus have been caught during recent years in Belgian waters ((Southern Bight of the North Sea): one in August 1998 as a by-catch of the commercial shrimp fishery in coastal waters, another in October 2001 on a tidal flat in the brackish part of the Scheldt Estuary. These represent the first records of this north-west Atlantic species in European waters, and their occurrence is likely to be due to transportation in ship ballast water.
