Abstract

The Indo-Pacific fish species Vanderhorstia mertensi was found, for the first time, off the Israeli coast in the Mediterranean. This shrimp-associated goby was reported so far only from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Its presence verifies the status of V. mertensi as an Erythraean alien.
