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. Douze spécimens de la crevette de l'Atlantique ouest, Farfantepenaeus aztecus (Ives, 1891), ont été capturés entre Décembre 2009 et Juin 2010 par chalutage au large de Serik dans la baie d'Antalya, Turquie. Cette espèce a probablement été introduite dans l'est de la Méditerranée avec des eaux de ballast. Il s'agit de la première signalisation de F. aztecus, et la seconde d'une espèce de crevette atlantique en mer Méditerranée.
