          Abstract

          This is the first record of Kyphosus atlanticus (Sakai & Nakabo, 2014) from Tramandai, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. In the Western Atlantic, the range of this marine fish known to extend from New England to São Paulo state, Brazil. We hypothesize that the occurrence of K. atlanticus outside its natural range is due to the recent (1968) establishment of new fish aggregation devices (two buoys, SPM-1 and SPM-2, of the Sea Terminal “Almirante Soares Dutra”), which enable this species to populate new areas.
