Here we report the first occurrence of the striped red shrimp, Aristeus varidens Holthuis, 1952 (Aristeidae) for the Canary Islands, based on two large adults recently caught off the island of Tenerife. The biogeographic composition of the Dendrobranchiata occurring in this region is discussed. This note also describes for the first time the small-scale fisheries addressed to penaeoids in this archipelago, reporting on their separate landing statistics.
