A new geographical distribution record of an Atlantic Ocean species, Megalops atlanticus Valenciennes, 1847, is reported on the Tropical Eastern Pacific Ocean based on 2 incidental captures by local fishermen at the Acajutla city, El Salvador. Two photographs, which give clear evidence of this species, demonstrate the increasing range of M. atlanticus in the Tropical Eastern Pacific. Regional monitoring of this species occurrence is recommended.
