Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
Biology/Natural History: This species is fished commercially with bottom trawls, but because it catches mostly midwater shrimp for its own food it is not usually attracted to shrimp pots. Its large, paddlelike pleopods suggest its ample swimming ability (photo). This species is sometimes parasitized by the bopyrid isopod Bopyroides hippolytes.
