Spot Prawns

Shrimp


Profile image
The largest shrimp of the pandalid family, Spot Prawns are found along the west coast of  North America from San Diego, CA to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. During 1999 to 2001, Spot Prawns were caught in experimental fisheries in Ensenada, Mexico, suggesting that their range may extend as far south as Punta Eugenia in central Baja California, Mexico. Spot Prawns are characterized by four distinct white spots on their carapace (body), a pair of spots behind their head, and a pair of spots in front of the tail. Spot Prawns typically inhabit rocky habitats along the seafloor from the intertidal zone (to depths greater than 400 m (1,300 ft), but they can also be found among the soft sediments of the seafloor. Spot Prawns may live up to 6 years, reaching lengths of 25 cm (9.8 in).  (Source Sactuaries.Noaa.gov)
