Fourteen alien fish of Red Sea origin are reported from Datça-Bozburun Peninsula (SE Aegean Sea, Turkey). Their biology and ecology were explored by underwater visual surveys and interviews with local fishermen. We report the first records of Etrumeus teres and Apogon pharaonis, and the second occurrence of Pteragogus pelycus off the Turkish coast of the Aegean Sea.
