The present record of the shrimp scad, Alepes djedaba (Forsskål, 1775), in the NW part of the Sea of Marmara, is based on the capture of one female specimen of 116 mm total length. The specimen was caught off Uçmakdere with a paternoster rig endowed with 20 treble hooks of different sizes. This is considered the first reliable record of A. djedaba in the Sea of Marmara.
