During an experimental trawl survey carried out by the R/V "Hannibal" in June 2006 several specimens of the Western-Atlantic penaeid shrimp Rimapenaeus similis (Smith, 1885) were caught in the Gulf of Gabes (southern Tunisia, Central Mediterranean). This represents the first recording of Rimapenaeus similis in Tunisian waters and for the Mediterranean Sea. Biological information on the sampled population is also included.
